Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Creates the New Hire Reporting Act.  Requires employers to report      
   newly hired employees to the Department of  Employment  Security,  and      
   requires   that   Department   to  maintain  a  database  of  reported      
   information and share that information with the Departments of  Public      
   Aid  and  Human  Services,  circuit  clerks,  and  federal offices for      
   purposes  of  enabling  them  to  perform  their   duties   concerning      
   collection of child support.  Provides penalties for failure to comply      
   with reporting requirements.  Requires the Department of Public Aid to      
   establish  a community advisory committee to oversee implementation of      
   the Act and to take other  actions.   Amends  the  income  withholding      
   provisions  of  the  Public  Aid Code, the Marriage and Dissolution of      
   Marriage Act, the Non-Support of Spouse and Children Act, the  Revised      
   Uniform  Reciprocal  Enforcement of Support Act, and the Parentage Act      
   of 1984.  Provides for orders for withholding to be served by  regular      
   or  certified  mail  or  facsimile (now, by certified mail or personal      
   delivery).  Requires a payor's nonperformance  within  specified  time      
   periods  to  be documented by certified mail return receipt.  Provides      
   that an order for withholding need not be served again on a  payor  if      
   income  withholding  is  terminated  because of an interruption in the      
   obligor's employment of less than 180 days.  Effective immediately.
