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.
I think it’s fantastic that this sentiment was stated explicitly to the federal government, and that it had so much support in the Kansas Senate. I doubt it will do much good, though. Nobody cares about the 10th Amendment anymore.
