Brownback Donor Gets Child Support Contract

Jun 20, 2013

A Mississippi company run by one of Gov. Sam Brownback's donors has been awarded one of the four contracts to privatize Kansas child support enforcement.

Contracts have been awarded to four vendors, who will take over the duties of child support collection in Kansas next September. State officials say those who avoid paying their obligations can expect a more aggressive approach.

Kansas Department for Children and Families spokeswoman Theresa Freed predicts the four contractors will increase the amount of child support collected in Kansas. She says the department projects an increase of $52 million dollars in collections over the three-year contract period.
