Thirty State Sovereignty Resolutions

Hat tip:Tenth Amendment Center

Many of you have asked for a central location to stay up to date with state sovereignty bills. While the idea of centralizing information and/or control over a movement of this kind seems to fly in the face of the principles of decentralization that the Tenth Amendment Center stands for, we have gladly succumbed to popular demand with this informational post.

We’ll do our best to keep this post updated when new bills are introduced. If you feel something is missing from the list, please don’t hesitate to contact us to let us know. It’s essential that people on the front lines in the individual states drive these efforts.

    The Tenth Amendment Center is a great source that I use myself. The center’s director, Michael Boldin, and I have corresponded on several occasions. The same information is arranged a bit differently at my blog, The Ohio Republic (, and once in a while I am able to scoop them. The Ohio Republic will also keep you up to date on _our_ state sovereignty resolution (HCR11) and related issues.
