On February 17th, 2010, citizens from counties all around Maryland met in Annapolis to support SJ1: Maryland Sovereignty Under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, introduced by Sen. Alex Mooney. Del. Michael Smigiel has introduced a similar resolution (HJ2) in the MD House of Delegates.
Maryland joins the growing number of States that have introduced non-partisan State Sovereignty resolutions. While a resolution doesn’t carry the force law, it nevertheless delivers a message; A message that firmly supports what the framers intended.
There was standing room only while a panel of six citizens provided testimony and more than 50 citizens filled the Budget and Taxation committee hearing room.
The panel consisted of:
Blaine Young – Newly appointed Frederick County Commissioner and radio talk show host
