VEH CD-LIC SUSP-DEPT PUBLC AID                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code.  Provides that  the  Department      
   of  Public  Aid  may  request  the  Secretary  of State to suspend the      
   driver's license of a person who is 90  days  or  more  delinquent  in      
   court  ordered  child  support  payments  or  has  been adjudicated in      
   arrears in an amount equal to 90 days obligation  or more and that the      
   Secretary  of  State  must  comply  with that request.  Authorizes the      
   Department of Public Aid to establish a  system  to  suspend  driver's      
   licenses  for failure to comply with court orders of support. Provides      
   that the clerk of the circuit court must send notice to the Department      
   of Public Aid when  an  obligor  is  90  days  delinquent  in  support      
   payments  or  in  arrears  in  an  amount  equal  to  90  days or more      
   obligation but not found in contempt of court. Provides that written        
   notice  must  be  delivered to the obligor indicating an intent by the      
   Department of Public Aid to request the suspension  of  the  obligor's      
   driver's license and provides several ways for the obligor to avoid         
   the suspension. Provides that an obligor may come into compliance with      
   an order for support by executing a written agreement with the Depart-      
   ment of Public Aid to make payments on past due and current support.        
   Provides  for  an administrative hearing before the Director of Public      
   Aid (or persons designated by the Director) to consider several issues      
   prior to suspension,  including  the  reasonableness  of  the  payment      
   amounts  pursuant  to  a  written agreement. Provides that the hearing      
   shall be conducted in the County of Cook or the  County  of  Sangamon,      
   unless otherwise agreed to by both parties.  Provides for an appeal of      
   the hearing decision to the circuit court.  Provides that a person who      
   has  had his or her driver's license suspended upon the request of the      
   Department of Public Aid may petition the court for a family financial      
   responsibility driver's permit.                                             
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
          Deletes reference to:                                                
          625 ILCS 5/7-705                                                     
        Deletes  everything.   Adds  similar  provisions,   modified   as      
   follows: removes the Department of Public Aid from responsibilities in      
   the  process  and assigns those responsibilities to the circuit courts      
   and the circuit clerks; changes provisions regarding  hearings;  makes      
   other changes.
