First, HCR 50 was referred to the State Affairs Committee.
Second, HCR 66 was filed.
You have not heard of HCR 50 or HCR 66? Well here, let me introduce you two these two fine bills.
HCR 50 is a bill:
Affirming that the State of Texas claims sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over all powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal government by the U.S. Constitution, serving notice to the federal government to cease and desist certain mandates, and providing that certain federal legislation be prohibited or repealed.HCR 66 is a bill:
Memorializing Congress in defense of the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, affirming the right of states to nullify acts of Congress, executive orders, and judicial orders, and asserting that any act, executive order, or judicial order that assumes a power not delegated to the federal government by the U.S. Constitution and which diminishes the liberty of any state or citizen shall constitute a nullification of the Constitution.HCR 50 asserts Texas' rights under the 10th Amendment. HCR 66 also refers to the 9th Amendment in support of Texas' rights under the Constitution.
HCR 50 has 4 authors and 20 coauthors. HCR 66 currently has just the one author.
Representatives Creighton and Berman are to be commended for putting this legislation before the Texas State Legislature and taking a stand for Texas' state rights.
You can read the text of HCR 50 here, and HCR 66 here. Give them a read and let me know what you think.
