The US House of Representatives has passed a bill to establish a new division of federal prosecutors and FBI agents.
Their job will be to try and solve, unsolved murders from the civil rights era.
The house bill authorizes $10 million dollars a year during the next ten years to solve these cold cases.
This project would also earmark $2 million dollars a year in grants for state and local investigations.
The bill is named in honor of Emmett Till, a black teenager from Chicago who was murdered in Mississippi for whistling at a white woman.
