EFFECTIVE DATE.  This section is effective the day following final enactment.

 

Sec. 2.  Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 119B.02, subdivision 6, is amended to read:

 

Subd. 6.  Data.  (a) Data collected, maintained, used, or disseminated by the welfare system pertaining to persons selected as legal nonlicensed child care providers by families receiving child care assistance shall be treated as licensing data as provided in section 13.46, subdivision 4.

 

(b) For purposes of this paragraph, "child care assistance program payment data" means data for a specified time period showing (1) that a child care assistance program payment under this chapter was made, and (2) the amount of child care assistance payments made to a child care center.  Child care assistance program payment data may include the number of families and children on whose behalf payments were made for the specified time period.  Any child care assistance program payment data that may identify a specific child care assistance recipient or benefit paid on behalf of a specific child care assistance recipient, as determined by the commissioner, is private data on individuals as defined in section 13.02, subdivision 12.  Data related to a child care assistance payment is public if the data relates to a child care assistance payment made to a licensed child care center or a child care center exempt from licensure and:

 

(1) the child care center receives payment of more than $100,000 from the child care assistance program under this chapter in a period of one year or less; or

 

(2) when the commissioner or county agency either:

 

(i) disqualified the center from receipt of a payment from the child care assistance program under this chapter for wrongfully obtaining child care assistance under section 256.98, subdivision 8, paragraph (c);

EFFECTIVE DATE.  This section is effective the day following final enactment.

 

Sec. 3.  Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 518A.35, subdivision 1, is amended to read:

 

Subdivision 1.  Determination of support obligation.  (a) The guideline in this section is a rebuttable presumption and shall be used in any judicial or administrative proceeding to establish or modify a support obligation under this chapter.

 

(b) The basic child support obligation shall be determined by referencing the guideline for the appropriate number of joint children and the combined parental income for determining child support of the parents.

 

(c) If a child is not in the custody of either parent and a support order is sought against one or both parents, the basic child support obligation shall be determined by referencing the guideline for the appropriate number of joint children, and the parent's individual parental income for determining child support, not the combined parental incomes for determining child support of the parents.  Unless a parent has court-ordered parenting time, the parenting expense adjustment formula under section 518A.34 must not be applied.

 

(d) If a child is in the custody of either parent and a support order is sought by the public authority in an action involving only one parent under section 256.87, unless the parent against whom the support order is sought has court-ordered parenting time, the support obligation must be determined by referencing the guideline for the appropriate number of joint children and the parent's individual income without application of the parenting expense adjustment formula under section 518A.34.

 

(e) For combined parental incomes for determining child support exceeding $15,000 per month, the presumed basic child support obligations shall be as for parents with combined parental income for determining child support of $15,000 per month.  A basic child support obligation in excess of this level may be demonstrated for those reasons set forth in section 518A.43.

 

Sec. 4.  Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 518A.53, subdivision 11, is amended to read:

(1) who has been served with an order for or notice of income withholding under this section shall:

 

(i) notify the public authority of the lump-sum payment that is to be paid to the obligor;

 

(ii) hold the lump-sum payment for 30 days after the date on which the lump-sum payment would otherwise have been paid to the obligor, notwithstanding sections 176.221, 176.225, 176.521, 181.08, 181.101, 181.11, 181.13, and 181.145; and

 

(iii) upon order of the court, and after a showing of past willful nonpayment of support, pay any specified amount of the lump-sum payment to the public authority for future support; or

 

(2) shall pay the lessor of the amount of the lump-sum payment or the total amount of the judgment and arrearages upon service by United States mail of a sworn affidavit from the public authority or a court order that includes the following information:


Journal of the House - 22nd Day - Thursday, March 14, 2019 - Top of Page 1114

(ii) the current balance of the judgment or arrearage; and

Sec. 5.  Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 518A.685, is amended to read:

 

518A.685 CONSUMER REPORTING AGENCY; REPORTING ARREARS.

 

(a) If a public authority determines that an obligor has not paid the current monthly support obligation plus any required arrearage payment for three months, the public authority must report this information to a consumer reporting agency.

 

(b) Before reporting that an obligor is in arrears for court-ordered child support, the public authority must:

 

(1) provide written notice to the obligor that the public authority intends to report the arrears to a consumer reporting agency; and

 

(2) mail the written notice to the obligor's last known mailing address at least 30 days before the public authority reports the arrears to a consumer reporting agency.

 

(c) The obligor may, within 21 days of receipt of the notice, do the following to prevent the public authority from reporting the arrears to a consumer reporting agency:

 

(1) pay the arrears in full; or

 

(2) request an administrative review.  An administrative review is limited to issues of mistaken identity, a pending legal action involving the arrears, or an incorrect arrears balance.

 

(d) If the public authority has reported that an obligor is in arrears for court-ordered child support and subsequently determines that the obligor has paid the court-ordered child support arrears in full, or is paying the current monthly support obligation plus any required arrearage payment, the public authority must report to the consumer reporting agency that the obligor is currently paying child support as ordered by the court.

 

(e) (d) A public authority that reports arrearage information under this section must make monthly reports to a consumer reporting agency.  The monthly report must be consistent with credit reporting industry standards for child support.
