As a member of the National Bulk Vendors Association here are five ways to show your support for the dollar coin:
1. Tell your member of Congress to support the COINS Act and save billions!
We’ve made it easy for you with our sample letter:
I am writing you today to ask your support for the Currency Optimization, Innovation and National Savings (COINS) Act, H.R. 2977 and the companion legislation in the Senate, S. 2049. These bi-partisan bills, sponsored by Representative David Schweikert (R-AZ) in the House and Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) and Senator John McCain (R-AZ) in the Senate will eliminate the wasteful dollar bill from circulation and save the government billions of dollars in the process.
As a member of the National Bulk Vendors Association I know this legislation is good for the economy and good for the American taxpayer. It is imperative that our nation has a modern, efficient currency system and switching to the dollar coin is good step in the right direction.
According to the Government Accountability Office (GAO), eliminating the dollar bill and transitioning to the dollar coin will save the government at least $4.4 billion over the next 30 years. During this time when all Americans are demanding increased government efficiency, we can’t afford to wait any longer to make this simple, common sense change.
Small businesses, mass transit agencies, budget watchdogs, trade associations, and private companies all agree; the dollar coin makes sense. Please join the bi-partisan effort to reduce the deficit by eliminating the dollar bill and switching to the dollar coin.
The Dollar Coin Alliance is a coalition of American small businesses, mass transit agencies, budget watchdogs, trade associations and private companies. We are located at 900 19th St. NW, 8th Floor, Washington DC 20006. Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
