Senate passes bill regarding drivers’ license revocation tied to child support payments

TRENTON – The Senate passed by a vote of 34-0 a bill that would amend a law dealing with suspension or revocation of the driver’s licenses of individuals who fail to make timely child support payments.

The legislation, S1531, would give the probation division the ability to waive termination of the license if the person responsible for child support payments makes them in a timely manner, and pays a substantial initial payment.

The bill would also eliminate a provision that states a payment plan could not extend beyond a child’s 18th birthday.
