House Resolution introduced reaffirming federalism

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Congressional 10th Amendment Task Force last week introduced a House Resolution, reaffirming Congress’ commitment to the principle of federalism and the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

The resolution specifically calls for “real decentralization of power” and recognizes that “the cause of liberty demands that government should be made accountable again to the consent of the governed” through the restoration of American federalism.

“The Founding Fathers’ vision of a limited national government of enumerated powers has gradually given way to an intrusive, irresponsible, and virtually omnipotent national government. I am proud to be among the efforts to engaged and educate other Members of Congress on the importance of restoring federalism principles in Congress,” said Congressman Rob Bishop (R-UT), co-founder of the 10th Amendment Task Force.
