PHOENIX (April 24, 2012) – Just a week after the Virginia legislature approved a law to refuse compliance with NDAA “indefinite detentions,” an Arizona law committing the Grand Canyon State to noncompliance with any attempted federal kidnapping under the NDAA now stands just a signature away from implementation.
After months of political wrangling, the Arizona Senate concurred with the House on an amended version of SB1182 today, sending the legislation to Governor Jan Brewer’s desk for a signature.
The Senate passed the bill 20-8 with two senators not voting.
This state and any agency of this state shall not provide material support or participate in any way with the implementation of sections 1021 and 1022 of the national defense authorization act of 2012, Public Law 112‑81, against any citizen of the United States.
The law would also make it a criminal offense for any public officer, employee or agent of the state to make any attempt to assist in federal kidnapping.Details
