New Mexico grants short amnesty to people owing child support

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 08/08/2014 - 06:48
By Joseph Kolb ALBUQUERQUE N.M. (Reuters) - New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez has granted an amnesty until Aug. 29 to parents who face arrest after falling behind with child support payments, but warned that a crackdown will begin next month targeting those who do not pay up. Under the scheme, non-custodial parents with an outstanding warrant for unpaid child support can pay a bond this month to cancel outstanding bench warrants, with no fear of detention, Martinez said in a statement late Wednesday. "New Mexico is committed to providing as many tools as possible to help parents support their children emotionally and financially," the governor said. The state's Department of Human Services website currently lists 662 individuals with arrest warrants totaling $1,812,258 in bonds and $20,297,592 in outstanding child support.

Florida lawmakers propose minor changes to congressional maps

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 08/08/2014 - 06:27
By Bill Cotterell TALLAHASSEE Fla. (Reuters) - Florida lawmakers proposed on Thursday new congressional maps that made minimal changes to the boundaries a judge had found unconstitutional, in a ruling that raised the possibility of election delays in upcoming midterm races. Legislators reconvened for a hastily called special session under court orders to submit new boundaries for two of the state’s 27 U.S. congressional districts. Leaders opened with a proposal offering mostly minor tweaks to the boundaries rejected last month by Circuit Court Judge Terry Lewis, who found the Republican-controlled Legislature had improperly rigged the maps to protect the party's majority in Washington. In question are the districts represented by north Florida Democrat Corrine Brown and Orlando-area Republican Daniel Webster, which were found to violate a voter-approved mandate that prohibited legislators from protecting incumbents.
