Lois Capps

1:27:28 to 1:27:31( Edit History Discussion )

Lois Capps: is a very timely and important piece of legislation. because as you may recall, the president -- $1 coin act of 2005 allows retailers, including vending machines that are located on federal property,

Lois Capps

1:27:31 to 1:27:35( Edit History Discussion )

Lois Capps: to both accept and disperse $1 coins by january of 2008. and we're talking about seven weeks from now. that brings about the urgency and the timeliness of the matter. this requirement additionally

Lois Capps

1:27:35 to 1:27:38( Edit History Discussion )

Lois Capps: applies to transit systems, military bases and those that take federal subsidies. now, while most vending machines, mr. speaker, are already programs and able to accept $1 coins, there are

Lois Capps

1:27:38 to 1:27:41( Edit History Discussion )

Lois Capps: very few who are programmed to dispense $1 coins. so that is why this legislation is needed. to exempt those vending machines from dispensing requirements that do not have a reason to dispense

Lois Capps

1:27:41 to 1:27:44( Edit History Discussion )

Lois Capps: the dollar coins in the first place. so that in effect, mr. speaker, if we do not pass this bill, we will have unintendedly affected a hindrance of the circulation of the coins by compelling them

Lois Capps

1:27:44 to 1:27:47( Edit History Discussion )

Lois Capps: to be stored in vending machines that will never dispense them. this legislation targets machines that have only one dollar in currency in exchange. so you can see there will never be a need

Lois Capps

1:27:47 to 1:27:51( Edit History Discussion )

Lois Capps: for the machines to dispense $1 coins. we believe that these precedential coins are very important. they should be circulated. the public should circulate them. but certainly by having them stored in

Lois Capps

1:27:51 to 1:28:03( Edit History Discussion )

Lois Capps: a vending machine which they will never be dispensed, is certainly not the way to do that and we need to make sure we do have the machines dispense and that is why we need this bill and i ask

Lois Capps

1:28:03 to 1:28:22( Edit History Discussion )

Lois Capps: that the house urgently pass this measure and i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves the balance of his time. the gentleman from georgia. mr. price:

Lois Capps

1:28:22 to 1:28:33( Edit History Discussion )

Lois Capps

1:28:33 to 1:28:46( Edit History Discussion )

Lois Capps: this legislation. this legislation is simple and direct and as my colleague stated is necessary. it's basically a technical correction for the presidential $1 coin act that was enacted in

Lois Capps

1:28:46 to 1:29:02( Edit History Discussion )

Lois Capps: december of 2005. that bill sought to use the mechanism of a regularly changed design on the $1 coin to draw that coin into circulation and it had specific language directing that retail operations

Fred Upton

1:29:02 to 1:29:15( Edit History Discussion )

Fred Upton: on federal property, including vending machines, accept and dispense $1 coins. makes sense since the coin is an official form of ucks exchange and not to hand the coin would be inappropriate.
