State Sovereignty Resolutions
Many of you have asked for a central location to stay up to date with state sovereignty bills. While the idea of centralizing information and/or control over a movement of this kind seems to fly in the face of the principles of decentralization that the Tenth Amendment Center stands for, we have gladly succumbed to popular demand with this informational post.
We’ll do our best to keep this post updated when new bills are introduced. If you feel something is missing from the list, please don’t hesitate to contact us to let us know. It’s essential that people on the front lines in the individual states drive these efforts.

Belleview, Florida (34420) May 19th, 2009 – Millions of people throughout America are increasingly concerned regarding the federal government grasping more and more power which the Constitution explicitly has given to the States. In fact twenty-six States have either passed or are in the process of drafting resolutions stating essentially that:
The 10th Amendment to the Constitution states: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
The Framers of the Constitution created an awesome system of checks and balances by their division of powers and the creation of the Courts which were to insure that the federal government did not violate the Constitution. Our founding fathers and framers knew the dangers of a powerful centralized government.
What will be the impact of this legislation to Florida? More importantly if the Florida Congress moves in a direction similar to other surrounding States what will be the implications to Marion County? Sovereignty Action will welcome the public to participate in this exciting, Non-partisan discussion.
