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.

Development and implementation costs total approximately
$750,000. Ongoing costs are yet to be determined, but will be

able estimate is not available. The Department will cover
these costs with federal funds.
