 1-2     relating to certain deductions from the compensation paid to

 1-3     lottery sales agents.


 1-5           SECTION 1.  Section 466.407(a), Government Code, is amended

 1-6     to read as follows:

 1-7           (a)  The executive director shall deduct the amount of a

 1-8     delinquent tax or other money from the winnings of a person and the

1-10     Code who has been finally determined to be:

1-11                 (1)  delinquent in the payment of a tax or other money

1-12     collected by the comptroller, the Texas Workforce Commission [state

1-13     treasurer], or the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission;

1-14                 (2)  delinquent in making child support payments

1-15     administered or collected by the attorney general;

1-16                 (3)  in default on a loan made under Chapter 52,

 2-2     Student Loan Corporation shall each provide the executive director

 2-3     with a report of persons who have been finally determined to be

 2-4     delinquent in the payment of a tax or other money collected by the

 2-5     agency.  The commission shall adopt rules regarding the form and

 2-6     frequency of reports under this subsection.

 2-7           SECTION 2.  The importance of this legislation and the

 2-8     crowded condition of the calendars in both houses create an

 2-9     emergency and an imperative public necessity that the

2-10     constitutional rule requiring bills to be read on three several

2-11     days in each house be suspended, and this rule is hereby suspended,

2-12     and that this Act take effect and be in force from and after its

2-13     passage, and it is so enacted.
