Pair of Ky. bills challenging federal coal regulations clear committee

Two bills written to shield the Kentucky coal industry from overreaching federal regulation passed out of committee Thursday, one in the House, the other in the Senate.

A bill that would exempt Kentucky coal mines and coal alteration facilities that mine or alter coal in Kentucky for exclusive use within the Commonwealth from requirements of the Clean Water Act unanimously passed out of a House committee.

HB421 declares that Congress has no authority to regulate intrastate commerce.

Section 1 of the Constitution of Kentucky recognizes that citizens of the Commonwealth have certain inherent, inalienable rights, including the right of enjoying and defending their lives and liberty and the right of pursuing their safety and happiness, which may not be infringed by Acts of Congress that lack constitutional authority.

Passing the Baton

We’ve got some exciting plans here in Utah for how to reassert and reinforce the 10th amendment, and are looking forward to expanding our volunteer base and organizational structure to make that happen. With the excellent foundation that Gary Wood has laid so far as State Coordinator, starting today I’ll now be filling that role (and Gary’s big shoes). Gary will be our Educational Advisor and we’re really looking forward to his continued input and direction in helping us make more Utahns aware of the importance of the 10th amendment.
