Subject: Slot Machine and Table Game Winnings Intercept Legislation
In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation that will amend Title 23 (Domestic Relations) to require the intercept of slot machine and table game winnings to pay for delinquent child support.

Specifically, my bill requires that upon completion of the federal W-2G (Certain Gambling Winnings) by a patron whose winnings exceed $1,200, a casino must supply the patron’s identifying information to the Department of Human Services (DHS). Using the provided information, DHS is required to determine whether a slot machine or table games winner is a delinquent support obligor prior to making any winnings payment. If the winner is delinquent, the amount of any debt will be deducted from the winnings and paid to the obligee. Additionally, my legislation permits DHS to establish a fee to be paid by delinquent patrons in order for both the department and the casino to recoup costs associated with the winnings intercept.

I would appreciate your co-sponsorship of this important legislation.

Introduced as HB1563
