Freaks...Mississippi 'Nullification' Panel Pushed By Tea Party Legislators Would Negate Federal Laws

Mississippi 'Nullification' Panel Pushed By Tea Party Legislators Would Negate Federal Laws

Two Tea Party lawmakers in Mississippi have proposed legislation to create a permanent committee charged with nullifying federal laws the state does not want to follow.

Under the legislation, a committee of 14 state lawmakers would be authorized to stop any federal law from applying in Mississippi, the Dispatch reports. The bill comes as state lawmakers around the country have sought to block enforcement of President Barack Obama's new executive orders related to gun control, often in ways that have been called constitutionally questionable.
