Bill Summary

At the end of federal fiscal year 2023, the act removes the requirement that the department of human services (state department) pass through 100% of the federal child support incentive payments received by the state to county departments of human or social services. Beginning in federal fiscal year 2024, the state board of human services, by rule, shall determine whether the state department may retain a percentage of the federal incentives the state receives for the purposes of information technology enhancements to the automated child support enforcement system and how to use the retained amount.

Beginning July 1, 2025, the act requires the state department to report on each project funded by the federal incentive money the state retained to the joint technology committee of the general assembly.
