House bill would move Revenue Department to Speaker Philip Gunn’s district in Clinton

House members want to move the Department of Revenue to a new home in Speaker Philip Gunn’s district.
The House voted 71-43 Wednesday for House Bill 1337, authored by the Clinton Republican, which would move the agency to the South Pointe complex in Clinton.

The state Department of Finance and Administration has been looking to lease 175,000-square-feet of office space to move the tax collection agency from the leaky warehouse between Raymond and Clinton that has housed it for 17 years.
