California Residents Hit With Government Ban On Paying By Cash
(visit the link for the full news article)
Residents of Discovery Bay,California will be the first in the country to be officially denied the right to use cash to pay for public services,in a move that echoes the Department of Homeland Security’s drive to depict those who use physical money as potential terrorists.
As reported by the Contra Costa Times recently,from May onwards,residents will no long be allowed to pay water bills or purchase park permits after the Discovery Bay Community Services District board voted to ban cash transactions for all services.
Anyone paying for such public services must do so with a credit/debit

Yes, they can NOT refuse legal tender..That is the law..
But also, what about the fact most places are charging a fee if you pay by credit card nowadays..
Is this a sneaky way to bring in extra charges???
