HB20-1100 - Amended, referred to the Committee of the Whole

01:28:04 PM  

Representative Froelich, sponsor, presented House Bill 20-1100. The bill grants additional rulemaking authority to the Department of Human Services regarding the pass-through of child support payments collected by the state to recipients of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) under the Colorado Works Program.  Under current law, in any year where appropriations from the General Assembly for the pass-through program do not meet or exceed the full reimbursement amount to counties and the federal government, the pass-through of child support collections to TANF recipients must cease for that year.  Instead, this bill gives the State Board of Human Services authority to determine if the General Assembly has appropriated sufficient funds to maintain the pass-through of child support funds each fiscal year.

The bill also creates the Child Support Collection Fund (fund).  Any unexpended and unencumbered money that was appropriated to DHS for the implementation of the child support pass-through program will be credited to the fund at the end of the fiscal year.
