32-918. Persons in arrearage under a child support order; prohibition against issuance of license, permit, stamp or tag. (a) Upon request of the secretary for children and families, the secretary of wildlife, parks and tourism shall not allow any license, permit, stamp, tag or other issue of the Kansas department of wildlife, parks and tourism to be purchased by any applicant except as provided in this section. The secretary for children and families may make such a request by providing the secretary of wildlife, parks and tourism, on a quarterly basis, a listing of names and other information sufficient to allow the secretary of wildlife, parks and tourism to match applicants against the list with reasonable accuracy. The secretary for children and families may include an individual on the listing if, at the time the listing is compiled, the individual owes arrearages under a support order in a title IV-D case or has failed, after appropriate notice, to comply with an outstanding warrant or subpoena directed to the individual in a title IV-D case. The secretary for children and families shall include an individual on the listing if, at the time the listing is compiled, the individual owes arrearages under a support order, as reported to the secretary for children and families by the court trustee or has failed, after appropriate notice, to comply with a subpoena directed to the individual by the court trustee and as reported to the secretary for children and families by the court trustee.

(b) If any applicant for a license, permit, stamp, tag or other issue of the Kansas department of wildlife, parks and tourism is not allowed to complete a purchase pursuant to this section, the vendor of the license, permit, stamp, tag or other issue of the Kansas department of wildlife, parks and tourism shall immediately deliver to the applicant a written notice, furnished by the state of Kansas, stating the basis for the action and how the applicant may dispute the action or request other relief. Such notice shall inform the applicant who owes arrearages in an IV-D case to contact the department for children and families and in a non-IV-D case to contact the court trustee.

(c) Immediately upon receiving a release executed by an authorized agent of the secretary for children and families or the court trustee, the secretary of wildlife, parks and tourism may allow the applicant to purchase any license, permit, stamp, tag or other issue of the Kansas department of wildlife, parks and tourism. The applicant shall have the burden of obtaining and delivering the release. The secretary for children and families or the court trustee may limit the duration of the release.

(d) Upon request, the secretary for children and families shall issue a release if, as appropriate:

(1) The arrearages are paid in full or a tribunal of competent jurisdiction has determined that no arrearages are owed;

(2) an income withholding order in the case has been served upon the applicant's current employer or payor;

(3) an agreement has been completed or an order has been entered setting minimum payments to defray the arrearages, together with receipt of the first minimum payment;

(4) the applicant has complied with the warrant or subpoena or the warrant or subpoena has been quashed or withdrawn; or

(5) the court trustee notifies the secretary for children and families that the applicant has paid the arrearages in full or has complied with the subpoena or the subpoena has been quashed or withdrawn.

(e) Individuals previously included in a quarterly listing may be omitted from any subsequent listing by the secretary for children and families. When a new listing takes effect, the secretary of wildlife, parks and tourism may allow any individual not included in the new listing to purchase any license, permit, stamp, tag or other issue of the Kansas department of wildlife, parks and tourism, whether or not the applicant had been included in a previous listing.

(f) Nothing in this section shall be construed to require or permit the secretary of wildlife, parks and tourism to determine any issue related to a child support order or related to the title IV-D case, including questions of mistaken identity or the adequacy of any notice provided pursuant to this section. In a title IV-D case, the secretary for children and families shall provide an opportunity for fair hearing pursuant to K.S.A. 75-3306, and amendments thereto, to any person who has been denied any license, permit, stamp, tag or other issue of the Kansas department of wildlife, parks and tourism pursuant to this section, provided that the person complies with the requirements of the secretary for children and families for requesting such fair hearing. In a non-IV-D case, the applicant shall contact the court trustee.

(g) The term "title IV-D" has the meaning ascribed thereto in K.S.A. 32-930, and amendments thereto.

(h) The secretary for children and families and the secretary of wildlife, parks and tourism may enter into an agreement for administering the provisions of this section.

(i) The secretary for children and families and the secretary of wildlife, parks and tourism may each adopt rules and regulations necessary to carry out the provisions of this section.

(j) Upon receipt of such list, the secretary of wildlife, parks and tourism shall send by first class mail, a letter to any new individual on the listing who has a current license, permit, stamp, tag or other issue of the Kansas department of wildlife, parks and tourism informing such individual of the provisions of this section.
