A bill that would create a brand new government department has passed through a house committee.

If passed, the newly created Department of Debt would be responsible for going after the more than $1.3 billion owed to the state.

Officials from the Revenue Department say it could generate over 100 million a year.

The bill’s author says he'd like to see some of the money go to heavily cut programs, such as healthcare and education.
