During his inauguration ceremony, Governor Gary Herbert said the following in his speech:

As a state, we will advocate states’ rights and we will vigorously resist the increasing burden of federal intrusion into our lives.

We at the Utah Tenth Amendment Center have a feeling that the Governor will be given several opportunities over the next few months, as the 2011 general legislative session ensues, to demonstrate his ongoing commitment to the Tenth Amendment. We are aware of several bills—some already publicized, others not as of yet—that will strengthen the resistance to extra-constitutional encroachments by the federal government.

Stay tuned in the upcoming weeks for updates on these and others bills as they are announced and work their way through the legislature!
