State of Arizona convenes exploratory committee to look at creating a gold standard through issuance of gold bonds

Over the past few years, a number of states such as Texas and Utah have created their own public/private gold depositories with the purpose of allowing their citizens to transfer their U.S. dollars into physical gold that can be used and spent in everyday commerce.  And earlier this month, an exploratory committee in the Arizona legislature convened a meeting to discuss how they too could facilitate a future gold standard through the issuance and sales of gold backed bonds.

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
The Arizona House of Representatives has convened an Ad Hoc Committee on Gold Bonds. The purpose is to explore if and how the state could sell a gold bond. 
This is an exciting development, as the issuance of a gold bond would be a major step towards a working gold standard.
