In Florida, the Republican Liberty Caucus recently drafted a resolution that RLC activists have been circulating to friendly legislators for introduction. The legislation is based off of the Oklahoma resolution introduced by the RLC-endorsed Rep. Charles Key and Sen. Randy Brogdon. The Florida RLC is encouraging residents to sign a petition in support of the resolution and urging legislators to introduce it in the 2009 session. Stay tuned! The fight has just begun in Florida.
The newly up-and-running Asheville Area RLC chapter in North Carolina was able to obtain unanimous approval of a “Resolution for State Sovereignty” at the recent Buncombe County GOP Convention. The State Sovereignty Resolution will be forwarded to GOP Delegates at the North Carolina GOP Convention to be held June 12-14 in Raleigh.
Last month, Missouri RLC Chair Rob Hillman testified before a legislative committee in support of the Missouri sovereignty resolution. Rep. Cynthia Davis, who has been in close contact with RLC members in the state, introduced the resolution, H.R. 212.
Across the country, the sovereignty movement continues to grow, and the RLC is proud to lead the way to affirm sovereignty of the states.
