HOUSE MEMBER SAYS RESOLUTION ON 10TH AMENDMENT ISN’T ABOUT PARTISANSHIP
BY MICHAEL MCNUTT
Published: January 4, 2009
An Oklahoma lawmaker wants to put the federal government on notice to stop doing things that he says are abusing its authority over the state.
With a Republican-controlled Legislature set to convene next month for the first time in state history, chances are good the measure will pass, said Rep. Charles Key. A similar resolution failed to advance last year.
Key, R-Oklahoma City, said he thinks many federal laws violate the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which states the powers not delegated to the federal government “are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.” The Constitution lists about 20 duties required of the federal government.
“We, the people in the states, created the federal government,” Key said. “They act like they created us and we’re under their authority, and that’s really not the case.”
