Wyoming Narrowly Rejects Doomsday Bill

unabomber-dollarHad it passed, Wyoming would have developed a contingency plan for the collapse of the United States — possibly including the purchase of an aircraft carrier, enacting a military draft, amassing a standing army for protection from surrounding states, and issuing of an alternate currency. The Casper Star-Tribune reports:

The Wyoming House of Representatives on Tuesday voted down legislation to launch a study into what the state should do in the event of a complete economic or political collapse in the United States. House Bill 85, which has received national media attention in recent days, was rejected 30-27 in a final House vote.

The bill would have created a state-run government continuity task force, which would study and prepare Wyoming for potential catastrophes, from disruptions in food and energy supplies to a complete meltdown of the federal government. The task force also would have looked at the feasibility of Wyoming issuing its own alternative currency.
