California

California did in fact pass one in 1994. However, California is now a completely different place. California was still majority white at the time. Today California is about 43% or less white.

Louisiana

In 1997 Louisiana amended Article I of their state constitution under Declaration of Rights. There include a 26th right which reads as follows.

§26. State Sovereignty

Section 26. The people of this state have the sole and exclusive right of governing themselves as a free and sovereign state; and do, and forever hereafter shall, exercise and enjoy every power, jurisdiction, and right, pertaining thereto, which is not, or may not hereafter be, by them expressly delegated to the United States of America in congress assembled.

Acts 1997, No. 1494, §1, approved Oct. 3, 1998, eff. Nov. 5, 1998.

Incorrect information on the net.

Massachusetts – False, did not pass any kind of resolution or amendment on state sovereignty.

It has been incorrectly reported on the internet that Massachusetts also added a line to their state constitution similar to the Louisiana amendment passed in 1997. As far as the staff of CofCC.org can tell the line they are referring to is part of the original Massachusetts state constitution ratified in 1780. This has had nothing to do with the modern state sovereignty movement.

Texas – Has not passed yet as many websites are incorrectly reporting.

A 10th amendment resolution has been introduced in the Texas House and it has 31 sponsors. For up to date information click here.
