Minnesota Non-Tax Revenue Commission
Governor Rudy Perpich, September, 1984
Function: The Commission will explore new sources of government revenue that do not involve taxes, which will concentrate on such areas as better collection of child support payments, foster care fees and maximization of payments from private insurance sources to offset Medical Assistance payments.
On September 27, 1984, Governor Perpich appointed twenty-six persons to the Minnesota Non-Tax Commission (MNTReC). The Commission was charged with the review and exploration of revenue sources in the State of Minnesota which do not involve a tax, and to make recommendations to optimize those non-tax revenues. Emphasis was to be given to the human services field, including the areas of corrections, health, income support, mental retardation, mental health, chemical dependency, social services, as well as child support enforcement.
The 1984 Child Support Enforcement Amendments to Title IV-D of the Social Security Act required the governor of each state to appoint a state commission on child support by December 1, 1984, as a condition of the state's eligibility for federal payments under title IV-A or D of the Act. Since the charge to MNTReC included the examination of the existing or prospective problems associated with the collection of child support, MNTReC was designated the child support commission in the State of Minnesota.
25 members: MNTReC membership consists of the state IV-D director, a legal services attorney, three legislators, a county administrator, three judges, a business executive, a non-custodial parent, a child support officer, three county attorneys, an assistant attorney general, a private attorney, three county commissioners, a social worker, a custodial. parent, a welfare director, a farm advocate, a women's rights advocate, and a children's rights advocate. MNTReC is chaired by the county attorney of Hennepin County. The McNight Foundation has agreed to supply staff support for the group.
