    Finally. Now if it will do some good?


    Introduced 2/17/09:
    Affirming that the State of Texas claims sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over all powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal government by the U.S. Constitution, serving notice to the federal government to cease and desist certain mandates, and providing that certain federal legislation be prohibited or repealed.

    Well, let us pray that it will do some or lots of good. A foot has to be put down somewhere and a hue and cry raised......

    I was wondering when this would show up in Austin. Several states are passing similar resolutions, and it's long overdue IMHO.

    God and Texas.

    'Tis merely a statement, but...
    enough get made by enough states and someone will have to start listening.

    Maybe the old saying "The squeaky wheel gets the grease " will have some relevance.

    We're going to see a lot more of this in the next few years, as the States rebel against 'unfunded mandates' and other oppressive measures.

    It realy don't mean much! It is kind of like the seat belt laws that the feds came up with some states did not use it so the feds told them they would cut fed money for road improvement and they gave in! It all goes back to the old saying money talks BS walks.

    Same thing with the prison system in Texas they gave in to the feds for more money from them.

    I think Idaho passed one too. Quoted the Heller Decision and other things IIRC.
