    Oklahoma Legistature votes for Sovereignty


    STATE OF OKLAHOMA
    2nd Session of the 51st Legislature (2008)
    HOUSE JOINT
    RESOLUTION 1089 By: Key
    AS INTRODUCED
    A Joint Resolution claiming sovereignty under the
    Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United
    States over certain powers; serving notice to the
    federal government to cease and desist certain
    mandates; and directing distribution.
    WHEREAS, the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United
    States reads as follows:
    "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."; and
    WHEREAS, the Tenth Amendment defines the total scope of federal
    power as being that specifically granted by the Constitution of the
    United States and no more; and
    WHEREAS, the scope of power defined by the Tenth Amendment means
    that the federal government was created by the states specifically
    to be an agent of the states; and

    WHEREAS, today, in 2008, the states are demonstrably treated as
    agents of the federal government; and
    WHEREAS, many federal mandates are directly in violation of the
    Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States; and
    WHEREAS, the United States Supreme Court has ruled in New York
    v. United States, 112 S. Ct. 2408 (1992), that Congress may not
    simply commandeer the legislative and regulatory processes of the
    states; and
    WHEREAS, a number of proposals from previous administrations and
    some now pending from the present administration and from Congress
    may further violate the Constitution of the United States.
    NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
    AND THE SENATE OF THE 2ND SESSION OF THE 51ST OKLAHOMA LEGISLATURE:
    THAT the State of Oklahoma hereby claims sovereignty under the
    Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over all
    powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal
    government by the Constitution of the United States.
    THAT this serve as Notice and Demand to the federal government,
    as our agent, to cease and desist, effective immediately, mandates
    that are beyond the scope of these constitutionally delegated
    powers.
    THAT a copy of this resolution be distributed to the President
    of the United States, the President of the United States Senate, the
    Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, the Speaker

    of the House and the President of the Senate of each state's
    legislature of the United States of America, and each member of the
    Oklahoma Congressional Delegation.
