Utah lawmakers are telling parents who are behind in child support payments not to count on being able to hunt or fish in the state.

House Bill 197 was approved by the House Judiciary Committee yesterday and will move to the full House for consideration.

The bill would prevent any parent that is behind in child support by 25-hundred-dollars or more from getting a state hunting or fishing license.

The one exception to the law would be if the delinquent parent sets up a payment plan with the state to get current with their debt.
