The US Congress is poised to “deem and pass” one of, if not the most damaging bill in US history. They are doing this despite the fact that an overwhelming majority of Americans are against it.
WASHINGTON IS NOT LISTENING TO US
It’s time to put pressure on our elected officials in Michigan!
If there is no way to kill this bill, then Michigan needs to exert its 10th Amendment Sovereignty and
NULLIFY this bill!
A number of states, like Idaho, are passing provisions that would either prohibit it from becoming a law in their state, or would require the state to file a suit.
Michigan has such a provision. House Joint Resolution, HJR YY introduced by Rep. Opsommer, that is in the Judiciary Committee.

This Joint Resolution would amend Michigan’s Constitution to create a Federalism Committee charged with monitoring and reviewing federal laws and mandates to determine if they violate the Michigan Constitution or if they violate such areas as the 9th and 10th Amendments of the US Constitution. Federalism Commission determines a violation exists, the law will provide for an expedited process for the commission to then push appropriate legislation to the floor to nullify.
Rep. Paul Opsommer will be joining us!
**BRING SIGNS, STATE FLAG!**
