     AN ACT relating to child support.
     Create new sections of KRS 205.710 to 205.800 to require a payment of a penalty to the Cabinet for Human Resources by any payor tendering a check to the cabinet that is not paid when presented to the drawee bank for payment; require the Circuit Court and District Court to have concurrent jurisdiction to establish, modify, and enforce child support obligations in cases where the determination of paternity is not an issue; limit the jurisdiction of the District Court in cases not involving the determination of paternity to cases where there is no Circuit Court order previously setting child support; amend KRS 205.750 to require court-ordered child support payments be made through the state agency or an agency designated by the state agency instead of through a domestic relations clerk of the county or other person; exempt the cabinet from liability for any claims of repayment in any support collected in good faith by the cabinet under a court or administrative order.


     HCS/FN - Retain original provisions except establish penalty for bad check at $10 to $25 rather than $10 to $100.
