Best Reason to Get Scales

Sound Money Legislation

Editors' Picks

Thanks in large part to Texas Congressman Ron Paul and his Libertarian "Rloveution," a pair of Idaho state legislators caught gold and silver fever last session. Reps. Phil Hart, an Athol Republican, and Lenore Hardy Barrett, a Republican from Challis, both pitched bills that would establish precious metals--specifically silver--as legal tender in the Gem State, though the Yukon Cornelius-inspired "sound money" measures went down in defeat. Hart said he's fixin' to reintroduce his bill next session--termed "The Idaho Silver Gem Act"--and you never know: Pretty soon all that neglected silverware you only bring out on special occasions might be paying for your next vacation.
