California Congressman Introduces Accessible Currency Bill in House of Representatives

by

On April 18, 2007, Representative Pete Stark, who represents California’s 13th district, introduced a bill, H.R. 1931, that would “require the production of Federal reserve notes in a manner which enables an individual who is blind to determine the denomination of each such note.”

Representative Stark has been a long-time supporter of accessible currency and has introduced several bills about the issue in the past. When introducing H.R. 1931 on the House floor on April 18, Rep. Stark said:

“I first introduced this bill in 1979 and think it is embarrassing that, more than 25 years later, blind Americans had to sue their government requesting access to their own currency. We should not delay or deny justice any longer.”
