Indiana Senate Passes NDAA Nullification, 31-17

INDIANAPOLIS (Feb. 21, 2013) – The Indiana Senate passed a bill that would block any attempts to detain people on Indiana soil without due process Thursday afternoon.

The Prohibition on Aiding the Enforcement of Unconstitutional Laws Act (SB400) passed 31-17. All but one Senate Democrat reportedly voted against the bill, with six Republicans joining the dissent.

If the bill becomes law, a “state actor may not investigate, prosecute, or detain any person lawfully in Indiana under a state or federal law that the state actor knows or reasonably should know deprives a person of life, liberty, or property without a fair proceeding in violation of the Due Process Clause of the United States Constitution or the Due Course of Law Clause of the Constitution of the State of Indiana.”

Indiana vs. New Hampshire
Which state will be more welcoming to lovers of liberty? We shall see :)


I have really been LOVING Indiana lately... add this to the latest "Castle Doctrine" legislation the Governor recently signed and throw in some pot legalization man we'd ALMOST have ourselves a free country in Indiana huh?

Another fun fact about Indiana is it has probably the most robust active militia in the country. Very well regulated/organized.

So all thats left is the

So all thats left is the House vote and signed by the Governor?

Will Look

and see what is left, but I do believe that that is all that is left to do. Not for sure if Gov. Pence will sign it into law though, seeing that he was part of congress that passed it. If he wants to stay as Governor, it's best that he does.

Pence voted against the NDAA

while in Congress, I believe. It would be great if he supported similar efforts here to preserve freedom!

What would the Founders do?

Governor Pence filling the shoes of Mitch Daniels.

Only 1-1/2 months into the job and he is being treated as a lameduck outsider who is not necessary to the government of Indiana. Probably rightly so, since the Republicans have super majority in both houses now. Democrat protesters can still rent rooms in an Illinois hotel and the new governor can veto bills, but neither factors in to the legislative process now.
