On March 12, 2009, the Montana House State Administration Committee held a hearing on HB 639, the Sound Money Bill. The purpose of this bill is to begin to reassert Article I Section 10 of the United States Constitution, which states that, "No State shall... coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts.
This is the expert testimony of Dr. Lawrence (Larry) Parks at that hearing.
Dr. Parks is the Executive Director of FAME.org (http://www.FAME.org), whose Board of Advisors includes Ron Paul, Lew Rockwell, Edwin Vieira, and other heavy-hitters who advocate sound money.
