Support sovereignty bill


I'm writing to urge the Nevada State Senate to adopt Senate Joint Resolution 3, which asserts Nevada's state sovereignty.

Nevada's Capital District Senator, James Settelmeyer, recently submitted Senate Joint Resolution 3 to the Legislative Operations and Elections Committee, which would put elected U.S. officials on notice that Nevada will not enact federal mandates unsupported by the Constitution.

The 10th Amendment limits the federal government's powers to those specified in the Constitution and reserves all other powers to the state.

Sen. Settelmeyer cited recent examples of the federal government issuing expensive, scientifically unsupported regulations regarding arsenic levels in drinking water, and rezoning land that has never been flooded into a flood plain.

Please contact Sen. Pat Spearman, committee chairman, and urge her to adopt SJR3.
