Deadbeat parents will still be able to hunt and fish in Missouri - despite a new law that yanks the licenses of those behind in child support payments.
Jennifer Sheffield has the story from Jefferson City:
Missouri's Social Services Department has decided to delay implementing a law yanking the licenses of parents who fail to pay child support.
Until January of 1998, one state agency the Conservation Department will continue to give dead-beat parents licenses for hutning and fishing.
Allan Breshears is an official with the state's Conservation Department:
The Social Services Department says the implementation delay gives the department more time to develop the necessary computer system.
