Georgia Child Support Reform Bill

This is copied verbatim from an email I received:

House Bill 221 is a Child Support Reform bill based on the Income Shares Model. This bill is a much fairer and less punitive way of calculating child support than what Georgia currently has. It takes into consideration such things as the Custodial Parent's Income, credits for time spent with the children, insurance and tax benefits.

How can you help this bill pass?1) Contact Wendell Willard and encourage him to schedule House Bill 221 to be heard in committee. He has asked that we email him, so email is: http://us.f609.mail.yahoo.com/ym/Compose?To=wkwillard@hotmail.com&YY=23686&order=down&sort=date&pos=0&view=a&head=b Keep your comments brief, professional and polite. No diatribes.
