MONTANA TO INTRODUCE BROAD-BASED STATE NULLIFICATION ACT
By J.B. Williams
February 8, 2011
The Montana State Legislature is first to introduce a broad-based state nullification bill designed to reassert the states right to rein in the federal government by nullifying all unconstitutional acts committed by the three branches of the federal government.
Montana HOUSE BILL NO. 382 sponsored by Rep. D. Skees is titled – “AN ACT PROHIBITING INFRINGEMENT OF THE STATE OF MONTANA’S CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO NULLIFICATION OF ANY FEDERAL STATUTE, MANDATE, OR EXECUTIVE ORDER CONSIDERED UNCONSTITUTIONAL BY THE STATE; ENACTING THE MONTANA NULLIFICATION REAFFIRMATION ACT; AND PROVIDING A RETROACTIVE APPLICABILITY DATE.”
The bill is based upon a Model State Nullification Reaffirmation Act researched and drafted by the Constitutional Justice Division of The United States Patriots Union of Sheridan Wyoming.
In cooperation with strategic partner Stand Up America, led by MG Paul Vallely, US Army (Retired), the Patriots Union has distributed the Model Bill to more than 30 state legislatures through its many member/activists across the states.
