Following the example set by their esteemed colleagues from Wyoming, Missouri lawmakers recently introduced a Doomsday Bill of their very own. Senator Chuck Purgason (R-Caulfield) authored Missouri Senate Bill 861. Under provisions set aside by the bill, a task force would be created to look into the possibility of the state creating its own currency in the event of a federal government collapse, as well as plans to distribute food and water. According to Trib.com, "Lawmakers in at least six states have introduced legislation to create a state currency (in recent years), all unsuccessfully."
