"Gold and silver held
26 under this subsection shall be maintained securely in a depository for pre-
27 cious metals constructed, at minimum, to Underwriters Laboratories (UL)
28 class two standards and located within the geographical boundaries of the
29 state. If no depository meeting the requirements of this subsection exists
30 in this state, the state treasurer shall select a qualifying depository in a
31 contiguous state."

Good on them. I remember Germany, Venezuela and the University of Texas doing something similar after the last crash. Let's hope Secretary Yellen doesn't argue federal preemption to redefine "contiguous state" as meaning any state that includes the words "New" and "York" in its name, and a "depository for precious metals" to mean the vaults of the Federal Reserve."

Yes agreed, and the assumption is contiguous meaning: Wyoming, Montana, Utah, Nevada, Washington, Oregon and Alberta (potential 51st state). But I can tell you they will have no trouble finding a vault meeting UL class 2 specifications as they are readily available in many ICCU branches. Also the bill specifies "geographical boundaries" so it can not be construed as a corporate legal fiction STATE OF IDAHO a subsidiary of the UNITED STATES and FEDERAL RESERVE.

Secretary Yellen is too preoccupied being the first woman Treasury Secretary. Nowadays that is the only prerequisite for employment in the Biden administration. Forget about getting someone that has a clue as to whats going on. It's good to see the individual states taking notice and taking action too.

They have already banned trannies from competing in girls sports. They have proposed a bill to make a constitutional amendment to ban marijuana and other psycho-active drugs. I don't agree with the latter, but they are trying to deter blue state people from moving here. Also they are talking about, if they haven't done so already; double taxing people new to the state as part of their closing costs.

It's getting expensive here now. We bought our home in December 2019 for $225k and it would probably sell for $300k without any improvements. Not that I would ever sell. It's worth far more to me. Stackers just like gun owners are definitely welcome here. Godwilling, we'll see you here soon.....

I have a few more years here in Washington. I would bail out now, but too many years invested with the company I work for. And to leave them now would not make any financial sense. Wife and I spent a little over a week driving all around southern Idaho last August. Loved the areas around Twin Falls! But the wife will need something closer to a city for the medical services. Several towns outside of Boise would work. We spent a day in Boise walking around and were impressed how clean it was, atleast the areas we saw. And they have flights out of Boise to Everette Washington which is pretty to close to her family.... She's not sold on the idea, but our little tour definately peaked her interest.

Yeah, we are close to Boise (but not too close), so the kids can get to St. Lukes Children's hospital. They both have type 1 diabetes and their specialists also has type 1 (juvenile) as well. Not many doctors that treat this condition have it themselves. So he understands our situation better than anyone else in the country as far as I'm concern.

Twin Falls, Pocatello, and Idaho Falls are all wonderful places. I would stay away from CDA. If I ever felt the need to live that far north I would rather live in Liberty Lake, WA or Kalispell, MT. The liberals here are mostly in Garden City and DT Boise.

They spread like cancer these commie bastards
I get enraged when I see a someone with their cali sports logo on their vehicle. I swear I want to key their car. I gave all of my gear away when I left because when I had visited before the move, all I saw was pro-2A and right-wing affiliated stuff out here.

I also get the same feeling when I see someone with their Biden-Harris sticker on their bumper. There aren't many here , just enough to piss us off!

FYI - I go to church regularly in Newport and some of the people live on the Washington side. Pretty much everyone in Washington would rather be in Idaho due to onerous Washington state liberal policies.

You better hurry, all the cali libtards are buying up the houses.
I think a majority of those are not liberals but conservatives looking to escape the liberal hell of Cali. Some of my friends have moved there and I might too if I could!
