Wyoming NDAA Nullification Passes Out of Committee
Tenth Amendment Center ^ | 1/30/2013 | TAC Daily Updates

Posted on 01/30/2013 1:31:12 PM PST by Kolath

Wyoming state representative Kendell Kroeker, along with reps Hunt and Miller, and Senator Case, have introduced a bill that declares the indefinite detention provisions of the 2012 NDAA to be unconstitutional, prohibiting enforcement of the federal act.

On Tuesday, January 29, 2013, HB114 passed out of committee with a 6-3 vote. According to Kroeker, “This bill will preserve our constitutionally protected rights by not allowing the federal government to arrest and detain our citizens without trial or charges being brought against them. The federal government gave themselves this power, which completely shreds the bill of rights, with the passage of sections 1021 and 1022 of the 2012 NDAA. It will be an interesting fight on the floor when it comes up in the next few days.”

The bill not only cites the various constitutional violations of the NDAA, but makes it a criminal misdemeanor for state employees and public officers to participate in trying to implement the aforementioned provisions. This would be a bold step for Wyoming. If passed, they could possibly be the first state to make participation with the feds in kidnapping people under the NDAA a criminal act.

I don’t know about the job market, but I do not think they have any income tax. My daughter went to college there, in Laramie. For a college environment, was not very “liberal” at all. Beautiful scenery!

You are correct, we have no income tax here. Sales tax is only 4% where i live.

“What’s the job market like in Wyoming?”

For us, not bad. We moved here from Cali three years ago and we’re doing great! We make more money and we get to keep way more of it than we did in Cali. It’s also a place where when the police ask you if you have a gun it’s because they only want to make sure you have one.

By your tag line I would bet you live somewhere within a hundred mile radius of Pinedale
