Conservatives in Mississippi, unhappy with the continual expansion of Federal powers, have proposed creating a committee which would review Federal laws and determine if they are in accordance with the restrictions on power as mandated in the US Constitution. Erich Lach reports for TPM:
A pair of Republican lawmakers in Mississippi have proposed a bill to keep the federal government in its place, and are laying out a plan to create a Joint Legislative Committee on the Neutralization of Federal Law, which would — well maybe you can already start to guess what the committee would do.
The bill, known as the Mississippi Balance of Powers Act, was authored by state Rep. Gary Chism (R), chairman of the House Insurance Committee, and Rep. Jeff Smith (R), chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. Earlier this week, the bill was referred to the House Constitution Committee.
“The provisions of this act shall serve as a notice and demand to the federal government to cease and desist any and all activities outside the scope of its designated constitutionally enumerated powers, and that attempt to diminish the balance of powers as established,” the bill reads.
Meanwhile in Washington, DC, elites from the Republican and Democratic parties agree to give amnesty to up to twenty million Third World illegal immigrants.
