Frank Niceley, passed out of the Senate State and Local Government Committee today by a unanimous vote of 8-0. The legislation defines “bullion” and “specie,” as well as explicitly stating that “subject to appropriation, the state treasurer may purchase and sell gold or precious metal bullion or specie that will be directly owned by the state, and in the custody of the state treasurer.”
