Members of the House Ways and Means Committee have re-introduced the International Child Support Recovery Improvement Act (H.R. 1896). Supported by NCSEA which testified before the Committee in 2012, the bipartisan bill mirrors the measure that the House of Representatives adopted last year. The measure would implement the Hague Convention Treaty to improve the enforcement of international child support cases. Ways and Means staff have indicated to NCSEA that the timing for considering the bill has yet to be determined. Last year’s adoption of this bipartisan bill does indicate, however, that the measure has a very good chance of moving once again in the House.
