THE “CONSTITUTION STATE” FIGHTS FOR SOVEREIGNTY
by Sharon Rondeau
(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.
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.”
