Explanation

(This amendment captures savings in the Division of Child Support Enforcement of $200,000 from the general fund and $600,000 in matching federal child support enforcement funding to reflect an increase in the annual fee charged for certain child support cases. The Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 required that individuals who have never received Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) benefits be charged an annual fee of $25 if the state collects more than $500 in child support on their behalf. The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 changed this to require a fee of $35 if the state collects more than $550 in child support on behalf of an individual.)
