Colorado NDAA Nullification Bill Passes House Committee, 7-4

Today, the Colorado State House Committee on State, Veterans and Military Affairs took up HB13-1045, which was introduced by Representative Jared Wright. After some sharp discussion and debate, the committee approved the bill in a bipartisan vote. Four republicans joined three democrats in voting yes and the final tally was 7-4.

The bill will now move on to the next step, a floor debate and vote in the full Colorado State House. Residents of Colorado are strongly encouraged to take action to help this bill keep moving forward. (details below)

HB13-1045 prohibits any agent or agency of the state from participating in or supporting the indefinite detention provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA) which are still held to be the law by the federal government, even though such powers are nowhere authorized in the Constitution.

Representative Wright said that 1045 was a “top priority to introduce this bill to defend liberty.” He continued, “Congress has overstepped its bounds. For any citizen in Colorado that could be arrested by any federal agency or military and held under military law where rights and due process are suspended is wrong.”
