Mississippi seeks state sovereignty committee to neutralize unconstitutional federal laws

Bill: HB490 (PDF)

Sponsored by Reps. Gary Chism and Jeffrey Smith, HB490 would direct the state of Mississippi to establish the Joint Legislative Committee on the Neutralization of Federal Laws. The committee, to be led by the Lieutenant Governor and six members of each chamber of the state legislature, would “recommend, propose and call for a vote by simple majority to neutralize in its entirety a specific federal law or regulation that is outside the scope of the powers delegated by the people to the federal government in the United States Constitution.”
