Utah Considers Return to Gold, Silver Coins

Bell credited Tea Party activists for advancing the legislation this far. Rep. Brad Galvez, who introduced the legislation, is a freshman legislator backed by the Tea Party. “Saying we now recognize gold as money is a big step forward,” he said. Twelve other states have offered similar proposals: Georgia, Montana, Missouri, Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Tennessee, Washington, Vermont and Oklahoma. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2011/03/03/utah-considers-return-gold-silver-coins/
