Legislative Alert: NDAA Nullification/Sheriffs First Bill to Be Heard in Committee This Week
The combination NDAA/Sheriffs First bill HB 2619/SB 2669 is heading to the General Subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, February 8. This is the critical first step for the bill and we have to start swamping our legislators with contacts expressing our support for the bill, and demanding that our legislators do not weaken the bill by amending it.
To read more about the bill and what it does in nullifying not the just NDAA, but all unconstitutional actions of the federal government, click here.
Quite simply, this bill is Priority Number One here at TN-TAC. Start contacting these legislators NOW to express your support, and let them know that you want the bill passed as written. Remember to be polite and courteous, but firm in your contacts with our legislators.
