SL Tribune: Utah House stamps gold, silver as legal tender
Lee Davidson, of the Salt Lake Tribune, reports on the passage of HB 317 by the Utah House of Representatives:
It may not fold as conveniently as dollar bills, but the Utah House took a first step Friday to recognize gold and silver as legal tender.
It voted 47-26 to pass HB317 by Rep. Brad Galvez, R-West Haven, and sent it to the Senate. The measure would recognize as legal tender gold and silver coins issued by the federal government — not just their face value, but also their value in gold and silver or to a collector.
