PUB AID-DIRECTORY-NEW HIRES                                                

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Public Aid Code.  Requires the Department  of      
   Public  Aid  to establish, no later then October 1, 1998, an automated      
   directory  containing  identifying  information,  submitted   by   the      
   employer, for each new employee hired in the State.  Provides that the      
   directory shall be used to facilitate the enforcement, collection, and      
   disbursement  of  child  support  payments.  States that the directory      
   shall be known as the State  Directory  of  New  Hires.  Provides  for      
   sharing  information  with  other  State  agencies  for the purpose of      
   collecting other debts owed to the State.                                   
          FISCAL NOTE (Dept. of Public Aid)                                    
          A State Directory of New Hires would cost between $750,000 and       
          $1,500,000 ($500,000 to $750,000 for system development and          
          $700,000 for staff).                                                 
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE                                           
          HB 614 fails to meet the definition of a State mandate.              
          FISCAL NOTE (Dept. of Employment Security)                           
          Development and implementation costs total approximately             
          $750,000. Ongoing costs are yet to be determined, but will be        
          driven by the number of new hires reported, for which a reli-        
          able estimate is not available. The Department will cover            
          these costs with federal funds.
