Nevada's Silver Bill (AB 532): An Analysis

Devvy Kidd
April 15, 2003

Recently my mailbox was flooded with headlines that read the State of Nevada had introduced a new piece of legislation (AB 532) that was going to get rid of the Federal Reserve. I immediately recognized this as a resurrection of a previous bill in their legislature back in 1993: AB 188.

When AB 188 came out, everyone was very enthusiastic about it, with most people in the movement believing it would somehow abolish the Fed. The bill never made it to the Governor's desk in Nevada.

In early 2001, I finally had an extra day so I drove up to Carson City, Nevada where their state archives are located. My research turned up about 140 pages of legislative material on AB 188. After reading through all the documents, I realized why that bill didn't go anywhere. It's really not what people got so excited about.

I then decided to ask Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr., probably the expert in this country - bar none - on the money issue. No one knows the central bank and money like Dr. Vieira.

Edwin came back with an eleven page analysis of AB 188.

Fast forward to 2003 and Nevada's latest effort: AB 532.

Same players as back in 93 for the AB 188. Bless their hearts for keeping the torch burning.

AB 532 is the same as AB 188 from 1993:


I have had the entire file of documents I retrieved from the Nevada State Archives scanned. The first document you will see in this html file is Dr. Vieira's eleven page analysis of AB 188.

I highly encourage everyone to read what Edwin has to say as to the constitutionality of individual states and the issuance of silver as money. Get the facts from a master of the subject matter and what Edwin recommends can be done to further the effort to get rid of the banker barons.
