It is my great honor to report that the Utah Republican Party has unanimously passed a resolution in support of HR1207 and S604! Earlier last year, the Salt Lake County Republican Party passed a similar resolution with only 1 Nay vote.
Utah’s entire delgation, save 1 (Democratic Representative Jim Matheson), have signed on as co-sponosres to either the House or Senate version of the bill and it is receiving tremendous support from Utah State Legislators.
The text of the resolution:
RESOLUTION OF THE UTAH REPUBLICAN PARTY STATE CENTRAL COMMITTEE
IN SUPPORT OF HR 1207 (THE FEDERAL RESERVE TRANSPARENCY ACT OF 2009) AND ITS COMPANION BILL, S 604 (THE FEDERAL RESERVE SUNSHINE ACT OF 2009)
WHEREAS, we, as Members and Representatives of the Utah Republican Party applaud transparency and accountability in government and reject government secrecy involving monetary policy that impacts the entire economy; and
WHEREAS, serious discussions of proposals to oversee and audit the Federal Reserve are long overdue; and
WHEREAS, the Federal Reserve can enter into agreements with foreign governments and foreign central banks and the United States Congress is prohibited from overseeing these agreements; and
WHEREAS, we, as Members and Representatives of the Utah Republican Party, believe agreements made by the Federal Reserve with foreign powers and foreign banking institutions should be subject to Congressional oversight; and
WHEREAS, the United States Constitution, gives the United States Congress the authority to coin Money and regulate the value thereof; and
WHEREAS, auditing the Federal Reserve will allow Congress to assert its constitutional authority over monetary policy and help to protect the value of the United States dollar;
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that we, the Members of the Utah Republican Party State Central Committee, in defense of the United States Constitution, STRONGLY URGE the members of the 111th United States Congress to support the Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009 and its companion bill, the Federal Reserve Sunshine Act of 2009.
