Good morning  


This is one of THE MOST IMPORTANT bills before the 113rd General Assembly.



Dont Miss GIFs | Tenor

In my 36 years at the capitol I have NEVER heard  a presentation like this.  This bill was 'red flagged' by the Governor's office, meaning that it should not pass.  You MUST watch this beautiful, impressive, historical presentation.  Bernadette Pager gave a three-minute support presentation. Then you will get to see Valerie Yancey from the Governor's office as she is called on to OPPOSE HB726.  PRICELESS!!  Then comes the vote!!
Please go HERE, then when you see this:

Horowitz: Tennessee lawmaker introduces the single most important bill for the life of our Constitution
What happens when the federal government promulgates a blatantly unconstitutional and life-altering regulation on our life, liberty, and property that no reasonable person can believe is within the confines of the constitutionally enumerated powers? What happens if a federal court invents a right out of whole cloth, such as mandating gay marriage upon the states two years after conceding it’s a state issue? Are we completely at the mercy of that edict and forced to embark on the impossible task of amending the Constitution, the government or the court just illegally amended? Hell no. And a Tennessee representative is leading the charge with a new bill that will restore the constitutional balance of power once and for all.

The federal government is only supreme over state laws if its laws are “in pursuance” of the Constitution. If we allow the federal government’s actions to be supreme – not just in a gray area of dispute, but when they are unambiguously unconstitutional – then we quite literally have no Constitution. If the federal courts are the final arbiters of the Constitution, then again, we have no separation of powers to speak of. This is the era we are living through today, and if there is ever any hope of restoring the Constitution, we must follow our founders, who believed that the Constitution rests in the whole of the people.




SB1092 is in Senate State and Local Government on Tuesday.
HB726 is in House State Government Committee on Wednesday.

It MUST be voted out of the Senate Committee on Tuesday to be heard in the House Committee on Wednesday and continue to move.
