Commissioner's Voice Blog

Commissioner's Voice Blog

In the Commissioner's Voice blog, OCSE Commissioner Scott Lekan shares messages directly with the child support community. Occasionally, the blog will feature a guest writer in Perspectives from the Field, where a child support director will share an innovation or initiative from their state. The blog is reprinted from the monthly Commissioner’s Voice column in the Child Support Report newsletter.
