Public assistance; changes in custody. Requires any circuit or district court entering an order changing or establishing custody to forward a copy of the order to the local board of social services in the city or county in which any person receiving public assistance on behalf of the child resides. The bill also directs local boards of social services to reconsider public assistance grants upon receipt of such orders and, upon any change or withdrawal of public assistance, notify the new custodial parent of his potential eligibility for such assistance.
