Transcript LEGISLATIVE...JEANNE SALATAN...$$1-2862 The vast majority (75-80%) of Texas children of divorced parents receive no financial assistance from the noncustodial parent. Current legal remedies and systems in our state are inadequate to reverse this trend. In response to this injustice, the Texas Legislature passed HJR 1, calling for an amendment to the state Constitution to allow the assignment of income for purpose of child support (only). What this means is that courts would be able to order employers to deduct child support payments directly from the parent's paycheck to ensure continues support for the children. Most other state allow this mechanism and it has been found valuable and workable. To do this, the Texas voters must approve a Constitutional change at next November!s election. Between now and then, it behooves all of us who care about the well-being of Texas parents and children to get folks registered, educated and out to vote on this vital issue. A state wide coalition is forming called TEXANS FOR CHILD SUPPORT. You will hear more about this in the next newsletter, (info from Texas Council on Family Violence..July 1983) VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN ... 486-8616 Judge denies restitution for rape victim BIRMINGHAM, Ala.
