Kansas legislators toughened penalties on deadbeat parents this week. Under provisions passed and sent to Governor Kathleen Sebelius for signature, the state can pull hunting and other recreational licenses issued by the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks from parents who have fallen behind in child support payments. In addition, the legislation would allow the state to suspend driver's licenses from parents who repeatedly fail to financially support their children. The governor is expected to sign the measures into law. Source. Sarah Kessinger, Harris News Service, hutchnews.com. To read the complete story, please click here (last visited May 14, 2006, reo).
