Lawmaker Wants to be Paid in Gold and Silver Coins

Montana state Rep. Jerry O'Neil (R) "is spooked enough about the country's fiscal picture to request that his legislative pay come in the form of gold and silver coins," the Daily Inter Lake reports.

O'Neil said he is largely trying to make a point and get "people to start thinking about what will happen if our money collapses. Also, I would like the state to think about the logistics of actually following the Constitution when it comes to gold and silver coin."
