State Sovereignty Resolution Update - 6/13

Tennessee became the fourth state to enact a State Sovereignty resolution. The State Senate passed HJR 108 June 13 by a vote of 31-0. The House passed in May 26 by a vote of 85-2.

Neighboring Kentucky is gearing up for next year. A third State sovereignty resolution, like both of the others modeled on Oklahoma (BR 54), was prefiled for the 2010 session in the House June 2 by Rep. Stan Lee (R).

The Arizona House passed HCR 2024 June 10, and sent it on to the State Senate.

Many States, unlike Ohio, have limits on the length of their legislative sessions, so I would expect activity to slow down considerably, at least until September.

Not only did the TN legislature pass a Sovereignty Resolution, but, even bigger news, they passed a Firearms Freedom Act [HB 1796] (similar to MT's HB 246). TN's spineless governor has said he will not sign or veto it, so it becomes law after the signing grace period expires (this week?).
