Hundreds of bills looming in legislatures on Common Core, NSA, marijuana

Feb. 2, 2015

It’s only days, a few weeks at most, into the 2015 season for state legislatures, and already there are hundreds of bills looming that challenge the power of Washington on issues ranging from Common Core to marijuana and the National Security Agency, according to a new report.

The Tenth Amendment Center, which tracks legislation at the state level, has listed some 200 state bills “seeking to block or limit federal power.”

“Sponsored by both Democrats and Republicans, these bills range from narrowly focused legislation that would allow terminally ill people access to experimental drugs and medical treatments despite FDA regulations, to bills that would deny resources and assistance from states to the NSA. Other legislation addresses the Second Amendment, the federal prohibition of hemp and marijuana, Common Core, the use of drones for surveillance, the Affordable Care Act, and even federal grant programs that arm local police with battlefield-ready military equipment,” the center said.

Center Communications Director Mike Maharrey told WND the observed “dissatisfaction level” in states is far higher now than the group has seen before.
