Repeal Amendment In Senate Sub-Committee Tomorrow Morning!Jan 17, 2011
Tomorrow morning, in the same meeting Senate P&E sub-committee meeting that will vote on the property rights resolution, senators will consider SJR 280, the Repeal Amendment. As we wrote here in one of our General Assembly previews, this would help restore the checks and balances once enjoyed between the federal government and the states by giving the states power to repeal any federal law if two-thirds of the states vote to do so. The resolution is patroned by Senator Ryan McDougle (R-4, Hanover). It will be heard in the Senate Privileges and Elections Sub-Committee on Constitutional Amendments (click here), and we encourage you to contact members of that committee to vote in favor of the resolution.
