Anderson Rips Hart’s Gold/Silver Bill

The House State Affairs Committee voted this morning to introduce a new version of Rep. Phil Hart's gold and silver currency bill, which declares that Idahoans may use gold and silver coins at face value as “legal tender” and “as an alternative to the Federal Reserve Notes that currently circulate as our only currency,” and also bans any tax on ownership of the gold and silver coins. It's a new version of HB 430, which Hart earlier introduced as a personal bill; you can read my full story here at spokesman.com. Rep. Eric Anderson, R-Priest Lake, (pictured) voted against introducing the new bill. “To me, it looks like nothing more than a tax avoidance,” Anderson said. “I don't buy the argument”/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.

Question: What do you think of Anderson's remark about Hart's legislation?
