H.B. 57 will outlaw the NDAA in Missouri

Zachary Cole at TyrannyWatch.org writes that, “As we reported yesterday, P.A.N.D.A. founder Dan Johnson, contacted me late Thursday night. He alerted me to a new bill that had been submitted a few weeks ago. I then contacted Heather Cottner, who is P.A.N.D.A.’s new State Coordinator for Missouri, to get further details and to see what her strategy was to get this legislation signed into law.”

Mr. Cole continues, “The bill, which at the time of this writing has no scheduled hearing, was sponsored by Rep. Scott Fitzpatrick and cosponsored by Rep. Rocky Miller and Rep. Paul Curtman. At its most basic level House Bill 57 (HB 57), hinges on the 10th amendment and state’s rights. The sponsors of this bill aim to reestablish Missouri’s state rights over the federal government and to outlaw indefinite detention of its citizens.”

House bill 57 reads, “Notwithstanding any contrary provision of law, no state agency, political subdivision, employee of such state agency or political subdivision acting in his or her official capacity, or member of the Missouri National Guard on official state duty, shall knowingly aid an agency of the armed forces of the United States in the detention of any citizen pursuant to 50 U.S.C. Section 1541 as provided by the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 or any subsequent provisions of law.”

As Tenth Amendment Center’s Kelli Sladick reports, “Missouri HB57 reaffirms an active role of the state Government established by the Constitution and says NO to the kidnapping of the people living there. In 2012, Virginia became the first state to pass such a law, and more than 15 local governments around the country did the same. In 2013, sources close to the Tenth Amendment Center tell us to expect up to 12 or more states considering the same.”
