Section 11: Reporting system information sharing program

Section 11. The commissioner, in cooperation with the IV?D agency, shall share reporting system information with other states, as required by federal law. The commissioner is hereby authorized to enter into reciprocal agreements with other states to share lists of obligors who owe support payments to the IV?D agency. Such reciprocal agreements shall only be made with states which administer programs that are substantially similar to the reporting systems. The reporting system information sharing program shall apply only to states which have similar prohibitions and penalties for disclosure of information as provided in this chapter and only if such prohibitions and penalties apply to information which is transmitted by the commissioner or the IV?D agency to the other states. The prohibitions and penalties imposed by said section forty-three of said chapter two hundred and seventy-one shall also apply to any such information received from any other state under a reciprocal agreement.
