Are we about to say goodbye to the dollar bill? The talk about replacing the bill with a coin is revving up again.

The Government Accountability Office said in remarks prepared for a congressional hearing Thursday that the government would financially benefit by making the change.

Mass transit agencies, vending machines and other groups are in favor of the switch, but there are other businesses in favor of keeping the paper bills.

Public opinion has consistently been against the dollar coin. Efforts like the Susan B. Anthony coin have failed in the past.
