BANGOR, Maine (AP) - U.S. Rep. Bruce Poliquin has pushed his first bill through the House.

The Republican from Maine’s 2nd Congressional District introduced the bill in April that would make it easier for agencies to enforce child support payments and it passed the House with bipartisan support this week. Poliquin, who became a single parent after his first wife died, says “the most important responsibility in the world is to care for our kids.”

Poliquin authored the bill and lined up a Democratic co-sponsor. The bill requires further action in the Senate.

The Child Support Assistance Act would permit enforcement agencies to obtain consumer reports on delinquent parents as part of the process of enforcing child support payments.
