The Tennessee Conservative [By Jason Vaughn] –
A new organization seeks to encourage legislators to come up with a legal process for nullification of federal orders in Tennessee.
TN Citizens for State Sovereignty was founded by Karen Bracken and David Vance to bring attention to the need for a nullification process. The group also hopes to serve as a model for other states while also moving towards the possibility of creating a compact between states for nullification.
According to the group, “the federal government has overstepped its constitutional authority for years” and it is time for the people to “rein them back in.”
Nullification allows states to deem federal laws or orders invalid within the state if those rulings are considered to be unconstitutional.
The group acknowledges that there are already options for state level nullification of federal orders, however, they argue that “it makes it easier and smoother if we have established, legal processes in place.”
Previous attempts to put a process in place to pursue nullification should the need arise have not yet made it through the state legislature.
State senator Janice Bowling (R-Tullahoma-District 16) sponsored a bill during the last session that would provide an “orderly pathway for the state to use the nullification process.” A motion on the bill failed to receive a second. It was mentioned that the bill might show back up during a summer session.
Bracken warns, “If we do not build a strong foundation to push back now we will see ESG, CBDC, Amendments to the IHR, Pandemic Treaty-CA+ and much more creep into our state.”
