Joining in with states all over the country, considering or passing legislation to resist federal overreach, are Washington and Oklahoma. Both states have bills introduced which would effectively nullify any future cap and trade legislation emanating from D.C.
In Washington, HB2708 – “Concerning adopting the Washington state energy freedom act of 2010 and requiring express legislative authorization for a greenhouse gas or motor vehicle fuel economy program.”
HB3219 – State Constitutional Amendment to reject Federal Interference in the energy policy of Oklahoma
Some additional text from Washington HB2708:
Any federal law, rule, order, or other act by the federal government violating the provisions of this act is hereby declared to be invalid in this state, is not recognized by and is specifically rejected by this state, and is considered as null and void and of no effect in this state.
