Kansas Sovereignty Clears Senate

KSCB News - February 12, 2010 12:00 am

Kansas senators have sent the House a

resolution urging the federal government to respect the state’s

sovereignty.

The nonbinding measure cleared the Senate on Thursday on a vote

of 33-7.

The resolution seeks to remind Congress and President Barack

Obama to respect the state’s rights under the 10th Amendment of the

U.S. Constitution.

Supporters say the resolution expresses the feelings of Kansans

who believe their freedoms are being eroded by federal mandates.

Opponents question whether the resolution is necessary.
