Even though I work as a part-time political analyst and have some contacts I can leverage, even the insiders cannot explain why things happen. Let’s look at recent legislation.

By: Press Release News.CoinUpdate.com (Coin Update News)

On Tuesday, July 25, 2017, North Carolina governor Roy Cooper signed into law House Bill 434: Coins/Currency/Bullion Sales Tax Exemption. The law is a complete sales-and-use tax exemption on coins, currency, and precious-metals bullion sales.

“The bill’s author, Representative Dana Bumgardner, coauthors Representative Jeff Collins, Representative Mark Brody, and Representative Mike Clampitt, along with its Senate sponsor, Senator Bill Rabon, championed the bill through the legislature,” said Mitch Hyatt (Hyatt Coin Shop, Charlotte, North Carolina). “North Carolina coin businesses and collectors owe them a debt of gratitude.”

On April 6, Representative Steve Stivers (R-OH) reintroduced the Cents and Sensibility Act (H.R. 2067), which proposes “to save the American taxpayers money by immediately altering the metallic composition of the one-cent, five-cent, dime, and quarter-dollar coins, and for other purposes.”

Cosponsored by Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-OH) and Rep. Pat Tiberi (R-OH), the act is further described in a press release as “bipartisan legislation [that] lowers the cost of producing pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters by ensuring they are minted with steel instead of minerals imported from outside the United… Full article at the source>

The program, if approved, could commence as early as January 1, 2017, as determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, who would also determine the appropriate quantities of Uncirculated and Proof strikes.

The following press release was shared by the Industry Council for Tangible Assets.

Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton recently signed the Minnesota SF 3175: Bullion Product Dealers Regulation Authorization, culminating major legislative effort led by the Industry Council for Tangible Assets (ICTA) to reform the most troublesome law for coin dealers in modern memory.

The new law amends the state’s “Bullion Coin Dealer Law,” passed in 2013, which applies to dealers at all levels of the industry and throughout the country, and imposes onerous regulations that were impossible to comply with. ICTA’s Chairman, Harry Miller, explains.

“Most coin dealers in the U.S…. Full article at the source>

CCPIA: Then and Now

May 7, 2015 in Ancient Coins, Antique Coins, Archaeology, Blogs, Collecting, Education, History, Legal, Numismatica, Numismatics, Opinion, US Government, USA Coins, World Coins

By:  (Ancient Coin Colleting Blog)

The Convention on Cultural Property Implementation Act of 1983 (CCPIA) has been in effect for more than 30 years and was massaged through the legislative process over a 13-year span. The fact that this law has withstood many challenges and is still regarded by most as a fair and well thought out piece of legislation, places it in a class with few parallels. The reason for that can surely be ascribed in part to a deliberative process in its creation that focussed intently on well articulated concerns from diverse interests.
