Prepared by: Children, Families, and Elder Affairs Committee (CF)
Currently, s. 409.25659, F.S., requires the Department of Revenue (DOR or department) to develop and operate a data match system in which an insurer may voluntarily provide DOR with the name, address, and, if known, date of birth and Social Security number or other taxpayer identification number for each noncustodial parent who has a claim with the insurer and who owes past-due child support. Section 409.25661, F.S., provides that specified information regarding a noncustodial parent who owes past-due child support, collected by DOR pursuant to s. 409.25659, F.S., is confidential and exempt from public records. The exemption will expire October 2, 2012, unless saved from repeal through reenactment by the Legislature. This bill reenacts this public-records exemption.
If approved by the Governor, these provisions take effect October 1, 2012.
Vote: Senate 38-0; House 116-1
