The bill also provides that the Department of Motor Vehicles shall not renew a driver's license or terminate a license suspension imposed for nonpayment of child support until it has received from the Department of Social Services a certification that a person ordered by a juvenile and domestic relations district court into an intensive case monitoring program for child support for noncustodial parents continues successful participation in the program or has completed the program. The bill also provides for the option of home/electronic incarceration of a person convicted of nonsupport. Read the Bill »
