Good bill! Of course, don't forget there's already a code on the books that mandates that the County (jurisdiction) under which the sentence is imposed, must PAY the CHILD SUPPORT $$ to the other parent on Behalf OF the incarcerated parent...LOL! I have YET to see THAT LAW obeyed since it's inception in 1950!
