Colorado Files Gold Money Bill
HB 09-1206, The Colorado Honest Money Act
Colorado Joins Indiana Picking Up Where New Hampshire Left Off !
State Rep. Kent Lambert (R), District 14, El Paso County and State Sen. Kevin Lundberg (R), District 15, Larimer County, have introduced the Colorado Honest Money Act, HB 09-1206 in the current session.
Colorado is the third state to introduce a Sound/Honest Money/Gold Bill based on the verbiage of well known Constitutional Scholar and Lawyer, Dr. Edwin Vieira of Virginia. The Gold/Sound Money Bill is compatible for any of the 50 states.
The Bill would allow Colorado to offer its citizens a choice of Gold (and Silver) coin or the Electronic equivalent in payable and receivable transactions with the state. This bold bill will finally bring Colorado back into conformance with the Constitution for the United States of America which states “No state shall…make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts…” Article 1, Section 10.

The Colorado Honest Money Act will be voluntary for citizens, but mandatory for certain, specialized businesses and will allow Colorado to fund the Treasury with enough assets insuring that no current state funds will need to be earmarked. The Colorado Honest Money Act is NOT a replacement for Federal Reserve Notes, but more of a competing, Constitutional currency and an insurance policy for our current, tenuous “money” system.

Special thanks to all who worked so hard to get the Colorado Honest Money Act to this exciting point.
