Texas House Passes States Rights Bill

"The Texas House has approved a controversial states' rights resolution championed by Republican Gov. Rick Perry.

Supporters say the resolution is a reminder to Congress in response to federal expansion.

The 99-36 vote Saturday supports informing Congress that Texas claims states' rights under the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Last-minute adjustments sought to clarify that it's not a call for secession or repeal of federal laws protecting constitutional rights." [link]

There are plenty of other states out there other than this. Check around on some of my links or do a search. I just wonder how much of this is actual posturing and if these bills become laws how much or how often they will actually be enforced. If they are thoroughly followed and enforced it would definitely be a very good thing.
