Mike Lee, U.S. Senator from Utah, recently sponsored a bill entitled the “Federal Reserve Modernization Act.” It is the counterpart to Rep. Kevin Brady’s Sound Dollar Act of 2012 (which enjoys 35 House cosponsors and, of equal note, already is drawing liberal fire). The Brady/Lee legislation represents an important first step forward to restoring good money to America: money that can provide a foundation for prosperity with equity, security, and, of at least equal importance, constitutional integrity.
