Congress has the power to enact this legislation pursuant to the following: Article I, Section 8, clause 5, which gives Congress the power ``To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures.'' This is appropriate because this legislation sets forth new guidelines for designing and minting new ``liberty'' themed quarters, dimes, and half-dollars. By Mrs. BROOKS of Indiana H.R. 2536. Congress has the power to enact this legislation pursuant to the following: Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution of the United States.
