PUB AID-CHILD SUPPORT PILOT                                                

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families Article of the      
   Illinois Public Aid Code.   Provides  that  the  Department  of  Human      
   Services  shall  develop and implement by rule pilot projects, lasting      
   no less than 3 years, to  test  the  effects  of  paying  to  families      
   receiving  cash assistance under this Article either (i) two-thirds of      
   the monthly child support collected on behalf of each  member  of  the      
   assistance  unit or (ii) the first $50 paid as monthly support on each      
   judicial or administrative child support order on behalf of  a  member      
   of the assistance unit, whichever is greater.  Provides that the child      
   support  passed  through  to  a  family  shall not affect the family's      
   eligibility for assistance until the family's  non-exempt  income  and      
   the  child  support  passed  through  to  the family equal the federal      
   poverty level, at which point cash assistance to  the  family  may  be      
   terminated.  Provides that no later than 6 months after the conclusion      
   of  the  pilot  projects, the Department shall report its findings and      
   any recommendations to the General Assembly.  Effective immediately.
