Tennessee Introduces Sovereignty Resolution

http://tnhomeandfarm.com/images/davidson.jpg

The sovereignty of our state as described in the 10th amendment is important for ourselves, our children and all future generations. Protection against abuses by the federal government is a concern whose time has come. Please help to affirm our rights and sovereignty by contacting the representatives who can pass this resolution. We should demand that they do so.

HOUSE JOINT RESOLUTION 108

By Lynn

A RESOLUTION to affirm Tennessee’s sovereignty under the

Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the

United States and to demand the federal

government halt its practice of assuming powers

and of imposing mandates upon the states for

purposes not enumerated by the Constitution of

the United States.

WHEREAS, the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States reads as

follows: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it

to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people”; and

WHEREAS, the Tenth Amendment defines the total scope of federal power as being that

specifically granted by the Constitution of the United States and no more; and

WHEREAS, the scope of power defined by the Tenth Amendment means that the

federal government was created by the states specifically to be an agent of the states; and

WHEREAS, today, in 2009, the states are demonstrably treated as agents of the federal

government; and

WHEREAS, many powers assumed by the federal government and federal mandates

are directly in violation of the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States; and

WHEREAS, the United States Supreme Court has ruled in New York v. United States,

112 S. Ct. 2408 (1992), that Congress may not simply commandeer the legislative and

regulatory processes of the states; and

WHEREAS, a number of proposals from previous administrations and some now

pending from the present administration and from Congress may further violate the Constitution

of the United States; now, therefore,

- 2 - 00394664

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE ONE HUNDRED

SIXTH GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE, THE SENATE

CONCURRING, that we hereby affirm Tennessee’s 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 Constitution of the United States. We also demand the federal

government to halt and reverse its practice of assuming powers and of imposing mandates

upon the states for purposes not enumerated by the Constitution of the United States.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that a committee of conference and correspondence be

appointed by the Speaker of the House and of the Senate, which shall have as its charge to

communicate the preceding resolution to the legislatures of the several states, to assure them

that this State continues in the same esteem of their friendship and to call for a joint working

group between the states to enumerate the abuses of authority by the federal government and

to seek repeal of the assumption of powers and the imposed mandates.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that a certified copy of this resolution be transmitted to

the President of the United States, the President of the United States Senate, the Speaker and

the Clerk of the United States House of Representatives, and to each member of Tennessee’s

Congressional delegation.
