A Virginia delegate fears a national financial meltdown, and wants to arm the Commonwealth with its own currency!

Delegate Bob Marshall says if Virginia gets its own money it'll help protect the commonwealth's economy if the U.S. Dollar loses its value.

He first proposed this three years ago, and the measure wasn't well received.

But it's starting to get a bit of traction, and has passed through the House of Delegates.

The bill calls for a study to determine the feasibility of Virginia minting money.
