Houses passes HB1, 49-21, and sends it to the Senate

The Idaho House has passed HB1 after a tense day of debate and public testimony on the bill that updates the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act laws, which Idaho has been successfully using to enforce interstate child support orders since the late 1990s. 

The House vote sends the bill to the Senate Judiciary & Rules Committee for debate and vote.

The updates in the legislation include new provisions for handling foreign child support orders from approved foreign countries, allowing Idaho families to receive child support from non-custodial parents living abroad.
