The New Hampshire General Court will consider a Tenth Amendment Resolution during the 2012 legislative session.
HR25 affirms state powers as delegated by the U.S. Constitution and the New Hampshire Constitution respectively, and calls for nullification of unconstitutional acts.
Representative Daniel Itse (R-Fremont) serves as the primary sponsor. The resolution has eight co-sponsors.
The resolution begins with a pronouncement from the New Hampshire Constitution.
The Constitution of the State of New Hampshire, Part 1, Article 7 declares that the people of this State have the sole and exclusive right of governing themselves as a free, sovereign, and independent State; and do, and forever hereafter shall, exercise and enjoy every power, jurisdiction, and right, pertaining thereto, which is not, or may not hereafter be, by them expressly delegated to the United States of America in Congress assembled.Details
