Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

This rule is enacted under Section 62A-11-107, which authorizes the Office of Recovery Services (ORS) to adopt, amend and enforce rules necessary to carry out its statutory responsibilities; particularly that of income withholding for collection of child support as specified in Section 62A-11-104. This rule clarifies that an income withholding notice to the Social Security Administration must be limited to 25 percent of the benefit amount if Social Security is the obligor's sole means of support.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

No comments have been received during or since the last five-year review.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

The statutes under which this rule is enacted are still in effect and the rule is reflected in the current policy, practices, and procedures of ORS. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
