KUTV News reports a new bill in Utah could prevent people behind on child support payments from getting a hunting or fishing license.

H.B. 197 would ban people who aren’t up to date on payments from getting a permit, license, or tag related to hunting or fishing in the state of Utah.

The bill states that anyone who owes more than $2,500 or more in child support would be banned.

An individual who is banned would only be allowed to buy a permit after they are no longer behind on their payments.

The bill would go into effect on July 1, 2021, if passed.
