Utah Asserting States Rights under the 10th AmendmentSubmitted by visible51 on Sat, 02/07/2009 - 18:01
H.B. 325 -- Opting Out of the Real Id Act
-Snip from bill text-
Legislative finding -- Prohibition on implementing REAL ID Act.
(c) was adopted in violation of the principles of federalism contained in the 10th amendment to the United States Constitution.
There is a lot of confusion by people playing word games regarding "states declaring soverenty" when it is more correct to say States are "aserting states rights" under the 10th Amendment.
Only one or two states, I know of, have come close to measures declaring soverenty - Montana prior to SCOTUS confirming second amendenment rights last year, and N.H. this year.
