A northern Virginia lawmaker is preparing for the worst, economically, and proposing the state consider creating its own currency.
Delegate Bob Marshall (R-13th District) of Prince William County introduced a bill that would establish a subcommittee to study whether the commonwealth should adopt an alternative.
Marshall's proposal cites the concern of foreign powers disrupting the U.S. economy to the point that the dollar collapses.
This is the third time Marshall has put forth such a proposal. Rather than paper bills, his proposed currency would be made of gold and silver coins.
