Some legislators in Wyoming taking no chances

Kai Ryssdal Feb 27, 2012

Some legislators in Wyoming are taking no chances should the American economy get worse. Much worse, one assumes.

There’s a bill pending in the Wyoming House that authorizes creation of an alternative currency should things go kerfluie.

An amendment approved last week on that bill also allows for Wyoming to hold its own military draft, raise and maintain a standing army, aquire strike aircraft and get an aircraft carrier as well.

I thought that last one was kinda interesting, ’cause Wyoming’s pretty much land-locked… right?
