Connecticut, the fifth state, was admitted to the Union on January 9, 1788

(Mar. 14, 2010) — A public hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, March 17, 2010 at 10:00 a.m.  on a Tenth Amendment resolution for the state proposed last month.

The hearing will take place in Room 2B of the Legislative Office Building, 300 Capitol Avenue, Hartford.  State legislators and the public are invited to submit testimony before the hearing.

The text of the proposed measure, HJR 65, can be found here.  Instructions for testifying are here.

Attorney Deborah Stevenson, who has assisted in writing both the resolution which will be discussed and two proposed bills which will not, released the following statement:  “It would be wise for individuals to contact their own local State Senators and State Representatives to attend the Public Hearing on the Tenth Amendment Resolution to speak out in favor of passage of the Resolution. The more legislators we can get to speak out in favor of it, the better. Not only will we be educating them about the issue, but by their attendance, we will be putting more emphasis behind the effort to get the measure adopted.”

According to the Connecticut Grassroots Alliance, which comprises 28 Connecticut patriot groups, “The next step in the process after the public hearing is for the Committee to vote on the resolution. That’s called approving a Joint Favorable, or JF, resolution on the proposal. The JF deadline is March 26, 2010. We will let you know when more information becomes available about the meeting at which such a vote may be taken.”

The Connecticut Grassroots Alliance has posted historical information on the Tenth Amendment here.

  1. Fantastic; how about all 50 States doing exactly this, and show Washington who’s Boss. Then, just maybe some of this blatant, outrageous corruption will subside, and as a Nation we can hopefully get back to God and the Constitution. Have a look at 2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land”.
