Lisbonee says that 38 percent of Utah families do not receive their current child support.
“Non-custodial support payments to children help fund their health care, shelter, food, and education,” Lisbonee said. “Loss of this support has a profoundly negative impact on children.”
The bill would prohibit anyone who owes $2,500 or more child support from obtaining the legal permits from the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.
If it passes, the bill would take effect on July 1, 2021.
