Texas proposal looks to nullify federal law in between state lines

Texas proposal looks to nullify federal law in between state lines
Fox News


A proposal in the GOP-led Legislature in Texas calls for the state to ignore federal law and court rulings and forgo enforcing national regulations.

State Rep. Cecil Bell's Texas Sovereignty Act allows for overriding federal laws through the same process as passing a bill. First a legislative committee, then the whole Legislature, would vote for nullification, and then the governor would sign his approval.

"If Texas has to live under California's environmental regulations because the court says, 'Oh no, Texas can't be Texas, Texas has to be identical to California,' this would make a legislative process to address that," Bell, a Republican from Magnolia, about 45 miles north of Houston.

     This is interesting. 
     Our Founding Fathers accepted Jefferson's tenants that States should rule themselves.  They realized that a Central government (essentially Boston, Philadelphia, NY, Baltimore) would rule all.  Exactly what Lib's want.  I believe Madison and Hamilton were polar opposites on this issue. 
      Thank God (the Christian one) that the body of representatives listened to Jefferson's arguments and followed that p.o.v.
     Enter the Constitution.

The commerce clause of the constitution is quite probably the most abused authority granted to the federal government. High time the states started taking back their own authority. What does not cross state lines, the feds need to get their collectivist noses the hell out.
