Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Horse Racing Act of 1975, the Riverboat Gambling Act, and the Income Withholding for Support Act. Provides that an organization licensee under the Illinois Horse Racing Act of 1975 shall withhold moneys from winning wagers and winnings from wagers placed upon races conducted by that organization licensee as provided in the Income Withholding for Support Act; imposes a similar duty on a licensed owner under the Riverboat Gambling Act with respect to winnings on games. Provides that if a licensed owner fails to withhold as required, the owner's license is not renewable upon its expiration, but the owner must instead apply for a new license. Provides that the Department of Healthcare and Family Services shall provide to each licensee under the Illinois Horse Racing Act of 1975 and each licensed owner under the Riverboat Gambling Act information concerning individuals who are identified in the State Case Registry of child support orders and who have been determined to be delinquent in child support. Provides for: the obligations of an organization licensee or licensed owner; notice to the obligor; priority of claims; administrative appeals; enforcement; and immunity. Amends the Fish and Aquatic Life Code, the Wildlife Code, and the Non-Support Punishment Act to provide for the suspension, revocation, denial, or renewal refusal of hunting or fishing licenses in cases where a hunting or fishing licensee or potential licensee is delinquent in the payment of child support. Provides that the Department may, however, issue or renew a license or stamp if the person has established a satisfactory repayment record or is determined by the court to be in compliance with the Non-Support Punishment Act.
