A California lawmaker is introducing a state Senate bill seeking to allow Golden State citizens to pay for government services using crypto assets.
On February 18, California Senator Sydney Kamlager introduced a bill allowing state agencies to accept cryptocurrency payments for services.
“This bill would authorize a state agency to accept cryptocurrency as a method of payment for the provision of government services.”
The bill has yet to pass into law.
The proposed bill is part of a nationwide effort to adopt crypto assets at the state and city levels. Within California itself, a democratic state senator is working alongside a Bitcoin (BTC) expert to push a bill to make BTC legal tender.
