On January 5th, Indiana State Legislators Introduced House Concurrent Resolution 2 (HCR2), “urging the United States government to cease and desist immediately any and all mandates that are beyond the scope of their constitutionally delegated power.” (h/t Nicole Singer Sander)
Since early last year, 40 states have seen similar “sovereignty” or “10th Amendment” Resolutions. The Indiana Senate overwhelmingly passed Senate Resolution 42 (SR42) in the 2009 session, but it didn’t make it to the House floor for a vote.
So far, seven states have had both houses of their legislature approve a sovereignty resolution, while three states have rejected them.
