NV controller’s website details state debtors

CARSON CITY (AP) – Nevada officials have launched an improved web site detailing more than $72 million in debts residents and businesses owe the state.

State controller Kim Wallin announced the launch of http://www.controller.nv.gov on Friday.

Wallin says the site isn’t perfect. Some debtors are listed by first names only and only a portion are listed alphabetically.

Wallin says the postings are designed to encourage debtors to pay. She says the list includes names turned over by state agencies for collection.

An initial check of the list doesn’t show many well-known Nevadans, although several members of the Hansen family – frequent Independent American Party candidates – do appear.

Wallin says pre-election timing is coincidental and the site has been in the works for months.
