Clock Ticking On Child Support

Idaho has received its formal, 60-day notice from the federal government that it will lose $16 million in child-support enforcement funds if Idaho doesn’t bring its system into compliance with federal rules within 60 days. Idaho Public TV reporter Melissa Davlin reported on her blog here today that the notice arrived last night, starting the 60-day clock ticking. In addition to losing that federal money, Idaho stands to lose access to the federal enforcement system it uses to enforce more than $200 million a year in support payments to Idaho children, and another $30 million in state Temporary Assistance to Needy Families funding also would be in jeopardy/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.
