Subject: Oklahoma HJR 1003 Claiming Sovereignty under the 10th Amendment to be heard Wednesday, February 11, 2009!
Calls and emails needed ASAP
The next meeting of the Rules Committee of the Oklahoma House of Representatives will be Wednesday, February 11, 2009 at 3:00 pm in Room 412-C at the Capitol.
Among the several bills to be heard is OK Representative Charles Key’s HJR 1003, which claims state’s rights under the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
The 10th Amendment states:
“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.”
Oklahoma HJR 1003 declares, in part:
“THAT this serve as Notice and Demand to the federal government, as our agent, to cease and desist, effective immediately, mandates that are beyond the scope of these constitutionally delegated powers. THAT all compulsory federal legislation which directs states to comply under threat of civil or criminal penalties or sanctions or requires states to pass legislation or lose federal funding be prohibited or repealed.”
Oklahoma is looked to as a leader in state’s rights and it is important that this bill pass both the House and the Senate in 2009.
Please call and email Rules Committee Chairman Representative Gus Blackwell and the other committee members to let them know you support HJR 1003 and to respectfully ask them to move this bill to the floor to be heard and considered by the whole House.
