(A) As used in this section, "casino facility," "casino operator," and "management company" have the meanings defined in section 3772.01 of the Revised Code.

(B) The department of job and family services shall develop and implement a real time data match program with each casino facility's casino operator or management company to identify obligors who are subject to a final and enforceable determination of default made under sections 3123.01 to 3123.07 of the Revised Code.

(C) Upon the data match program's implementation, if a person's winnings at a casino facility are an amount for which reporting to the internal revenue service of the amount is required by section 6041 of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended, the casino operator or management company shall refer to the data match program to determine if the person entitled to the winnings is in default under a support order.

(D) Not later than seven days after withholding the amount, the casino operator or management company shall transmit any amount withheld to the department as payment on the support obligation.

(E) The department, in consultation with the Ohio casino control commission, may adopt rules under Chapter 119. of the Revised Code as are necessary for implementation of this section.
