(a) For purposes of this section, "licensing board" means a licensing board or other state agency that issues an occupational license.
(b) If a licensing board receives an order from a court or a child support magistrate or a notice from a public authority responsible for child support enforcement under section 518A.66 dealing with suspension of a license of a person found by the court or the public authority to be in arrears in child support or maintenance payments, or both, the board shall, within 30 days of receipt of the order or public authority notice, suspend the license as directed by the order or notice.
A board may not issue, reinstate, or renew a license of a person who has been suspended or is the subject of an order or notice under this section until it receives notification from the court, child support magistrate, or public authority that referred the matter to the board confirming that the applicant is not in arrears in either child support or maintenance payments, or confirming that the person is in compliance with a written payment plan regarding both current support and arrearages.
This section applies to support obligations ordered by any state, territory, or district of the United States.
