Good News for Child Support Enforcement

Last Thursday, Democratic Senator Jay Rockefeller introduced the Child Support Enforcement Act, which would restore needed funding to child support enforcement efforts by reinstating the federal policy of matching the state-provided funds.

Joan Entmacher at Womenstake highlighted the impressive bipartisan support behind the bill in her blog post about the act: Democrat Herb Kohl and Republicans Olympia Snowe and John Cornyn join Rockefeller as co-sponsors, working to ensure that parents financially support their children.

The bill is currently in the Finance Committee. We hope that this bill, which directly affects the lives of millions of children, continues to attract the bipartisan support it deserves and soon becomes law.
