- Require all State agencies to submit debts for setoff unless the State Controller waives the requirement for that agency.
- Shift liability for the collection assistance fee retained by the Department of Revenue from the claimant agency to the debtor, except for child support arrearages.
- Make the setoff process automatic within the Department of Revenue if a claim has been filed and the claim and refund available for setoff is $50 or more.
