The Louisiana State House voted to approve Senate Concurrent Resolution 2 (SCR2) which “Memorializes Congress to affirm Louisiana’s sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America and to demand that the federal government halt its practices of assuming powers and imposing mandates upon the states for purposes not enumerated by the Constitution of the United States of America.”
The resolution, authored by State Senator Crowe, passed by a vote of 59-12. It previously passed the State Senate by a vote of 32-0. (h/t hayestown)
Louisiana joins Alaska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Oklahoma, Idaho and Tennessee as states where similar resolutions affirming sovereignty under the 10th Amendment to the Constitution have been approved by both legislative houses.
There has to be a good reason that these States are affirming their sovereignty, I think they are concern about whats ahead with Obama taking control of everything in his path!
