Tennessee Senate proposes bill to exclude CBDCs from state’s definition of money

A Tennessee Senator has introduced a new bill that seeks to decouple CBDCs from the state’s definition of money.

Tennessee’s Senate introduced a new bill authored by Senator Frank Niceley that proposes to redefine the term “money” within the state’s Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). The idea is to explicitly exclude central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) from the state’s definition of money.

This move aligns with similar legislative actions in Indiana and Florida, indicating a growing trend among states to scrutinize the role of government-issued digital currencies in their economies. Governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, has expressed reservations about CBDCs, focusing on concerns about individual privacy and governmental overreach.

CBDCs represent a digital form of a country’s fiat currency, issued and regulated by its central bank. They are distinct from decentralized crypto like Bitcoin (BTC), as they are centralized and government-backed.

Proponents of CBDCs argue that they offer enhanced security, potentially increase financial inclusion, and provide a more efficient transaction system compared to traditional currency. However, concerns have been raised about the implications for privacy and the potential for increased government surveillance, given the traceability of digital transactions.

The Tennessee bill raises significant questions about the interaction between state and federal law, especially considering the U.S. Constitution’s supremacy clause, which gives federal law precedence over state laws. This tension is not new; historical instances like California’s legalization of medical marijuana in 1996, despite federal prohibition, and various states’ resistance to the REAL ID Act, demonstrate how state legislation can impact the implementation of federal policies.
