Lawmakers in the state of Missouri want to ensure that those parents who do not pay their child support payments do not have the opportunity to gamble away money. The Missouri House is moving to ban deadbeat parents from casinos in the state.

The early indications from the House is that the bill requiring that parents who owe child support be banned from casinos will be passed. The first round of voting is complete, and now the Bill must pass a second vote before the Senate takes up the legislation.

The provision to ban deadbeat parents from casinos was added to HB1194. The original Bill would allow gamblers to use tokens to pay for their drinks and food at casinos. it is viewed as a way to make things easier for both the casinos and the gamblers.

The child-support provision is one that has been effectively used in other states. In some states, parents owing back child support payments would be blocked from winning slot jackpots. If the gambler wins a jackpot, the casino would check their name against a database to see if child support is owed.

The new legislation in Missouri would prohibit gamblers from even entering the casino if they have a felony conviction for not paying child support. A vote on the proposed bill should come either later this week or next wee.
