Support for the Tenth Amendment was strong in Naples, FL the evening of Aug. 17th. Matt Hudson, Representative for Florida’s 101st District, informed a packed room of citizens about House Memorial 19. HM19 urges Congress to honor the provisions of the Constitution of the United States and the United States Supreme Court case law which limit the scope and exercise of federal power.
Rep. Hudson went on to explain that HM19 serves as a notice and a demand by the people of the state of Florida as expressed through their legislature to the Federal Government to cease and desist from going beyond the scope of and issuing mandates beyond it’s constitutionally delegated powers. It also reasserts Florida’s sovereignty under the 10th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.
Rep. Hudson encouraged the audience to fight back against this federal power-grab! He asked Floridians to go to FLFreedom.org and sign up to become citizen co-sponsors, share the website with other Floridians, and phone and write Florida representatives and senators encouraging them to support HM19.
In addition, Rep. Hudson asked the audience to go to www.myfloridahouse.gov to the Legislative Tracker and sign up for HM19. If the bill is heard in committee, those signed up with be notified so they can put an alert out to call their phone tree and to flood the committee members with phone calls and emails.
Those who sign up to track HM19 will also be notified of committee meetings and floor sessions that relate to HM19 so they can watch the meetings and sessions on a live broadcast on the internet.
