Expect some negotiations on those child-support amendments…

Some of the senators who unanimously supported SB 1067, the child support enforcement bill, before it died in a House committee on the final day of the legislative session, are not enthused about amendments proposed by House members designed to gain their support, reports Melissa Davlin of Idaho Public Television.  

“The proposed language is not acceptable to me,” Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis, R-Idaho Falls, told Davlin. “Some of the language is, but there are major portions that are poor public policy, including a mental health exception to paying alimony/maintenance. I am working with others on a thoughtful set of additions to UIFSA. I am confident that we can get a resolution, but we are not there yet.” You can read Davlin’s full post at her Idaho Reports blog here.
