As of February 23, 2012 – SB819 in Missouri (which would prohibit state enforcement of provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012) had been given a second read, and referred to General Laws Committee. Because of this recent action, we now urge you to contact the individual leaders of the General Laws Committee, and politely explain why you are serious about the protection of our Constitutional rights. Remember – If this should pass in Missouri, it will help serve as an example for other states in the adoption of their own NDAA nullification efforts.

So what exactly will SB 819 do? This act creates the Missouri Liberty Preservation Act. The state of Missouri will be prohibited from participating or providing material support for the implementation of sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012. The Department of Public Safety is to report to the Governor and General Assembly attempts by the United States government to implement the specified sections through any Missouri state department. Any indefinite detention, prosecution under the law or war, or transfer to a foreign jurisdiction under the specified sections are deemed illegal in Missouri.

A violation of this act by any public officers, employees, or agents of the state of Missouri or employee providing services to the state of Missouri will be a Class B misdemeanor. A violation of this act by any official, agent, or employee of the United States government or employee of a corporation providing services to the United States government will be deemed a Class A misdemeanor.


As the leaders of the General Laws Committee (listed below) debate the future of SB 819, please use the following contact information in sharing why SB 819 will help preserve the cause of liberty in our Constitutional Republic. This information is also available HERE.
