Arizona’s government has adopted new pro-Gold reforms

This blog had pointed how some US States are planning to allow gold/silver as currencies.

Now Arizona has acted to removing taxes on Gold and Silver:

Last week in Arizona, Governor Ducey signed into law HB 2014, which removes state-level taxation of gold and silver coins, and moves the state further toward treating gold and silver as simply another form of legal tender. By removing taxation, the legislation facilitates the more widespread purchasing and selling of gold and silver both an a hedge against inflation and as a medium of exchange. 

In March, Ron Paul testified at the Arizona legislature in favor of the bill, and noted he considers the legislation as part of an effort to create more room for “competing currencies” against the dollar. 

The HB 2014 easily passed through floor votes of both the House and Senate, although it remained unclear whether or not the bill would be signed into law. Governor Doug Ducey had previously vetoed similar legislation, likely motivated by tax revenue concerns. 

interesting set of developments in US despite all the noise…
