Child Support Jackpot
Not all new ideas from America are good, but I certainly like this one. In Colorado, casinos are now required by law to do a computer check on any patron who wins more than $1,200 in jackpot winnings. The computer will check to see if they owe any child support and if so, the winnings will be paid to the state rather than the winner. The new law is working, too - apparently it has recovered over $600,000 in its first year. Something that should be considered over here perhaps?
