CofCC.org News Team

It has been brought to our attention that Utah passed a 10th Amendment/State Sovereignty Resolution, as well as followup “Proper Role of Government” Resolution in 1995. This brings the total number of states who took action in the 1990s to four.

A 10th Amendment/State Sovereignty Resolution was killed by a committee chairman in the Washington House of Representatives. The resolution has seven sponsors.

A 10th Amendment Resolution has been introduced into the Virginia House and it has 14 sponsors.

Note: There may be more. Numerous mass e-mails have claimed more states, but some of the information we have found to be either wrong or unverifiable.

Georgia introduced a resolution in 1995 that did not go anywhere. We can not find any information that a new resolution has been introduced in Georgia for this legislative session. In Hawaii resolutions have been proposed for greater autonomy of indigenous Hawaiian natives. We have not found one that is actually affirming state sovereignty.
