The bill, which advanced in a 4-2 vote by a House committee Monday, states that gold and silver should be legal currency not subject to tax or regulation as property. The Republican-led Senate gave the bill its blessing in February in a 17-11 partisan vote.
The bill would let people use the precious metals as money as long as businesses agree to take them. If made law, it would take effect in 2014.
Thanks. God bless.
