Now this will be interesting to watch. If Georgia passes this, then I expect more States to follow.

Yep.

Georgia and 49 more.

The other 7 Obama states can stick with the Boy King.

High time that the States (or at least some states) woke up from under the thumb of the Federal Government! Amen...

From the article:

A panel of Georgia lawmakers would have the power to review federal law and declare it illegal under a proposal in the state Senate.

Senate Resolution 889 would create a “joint commission on recommendation” to advise on which federal laws infringed on the state. If approved by two-thirds of the General Assembly, Georgia residents would be exempted from following them.

Sponsored by state Sen. John Albers, R-Roswell, the proposal would also force lawmakers to “adopt and enact any and all measures that may become necessary to prevent the wrongful enforcement of any federal laws or regulations duly nullified within the boundaries and limits of this state.”

Well I was hoping the article would provide more details...but sadly, it did not.

Like the collecting of the Federal income tax, and when the states don't comply, the Feds withhold funds. What recourse does the State have?

I really hope more states start adopting this attitude.

I seem to recall Georgia went down this road before. Newt even wrote some books on it. It ended poorly, IIRC. Something to do with Sherman. At best this is poor timing for it. They can always reconsider if Obama is re-elected.

It probably has a good chance to pass as the GOP holds almost a supermajority in both state houses.

Thank God the republicans in the state house bear little or no resemblance to the 2 RINO senators and a lot of the US reps from GA.
