HCR 2024 is scheduled to be debated in the House Committee of the Whole (COW) on Tuesday, April 14, 2009 .
HCR 2024 stipulates that the state of Arizona claims sovereignty under the 10th Amendment to the Constitution over all powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal government by the Constitution. It states that this resolution serves as both a notice and a demand to the federal government to immediately cease and desist mandates that are beyond the scope of these constitutionally delegated powers. It demands that all compulsory federal legislation that directs states to comply, under threat of civil or criminal penalties, or sanctions or requires states to pass legislation or otherwise lose federal funding, be prohibited or repealed.
HCR 2024 requires the Arizona Secretary of State to transmit copies of this resolution to the President of the United States , the President of the United States Senate, the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, the Speaker of the House and the President of the Senate of each state's legislature, and each member of the Arizona Congressional Delegation.
We urge everyone to contact your Representatives and politely ask them to support HCR 2024 when it is debated in the COW on Tuesday, April 14, 2009 . You can find your Representatives here: http://www.azleg. gov/alisStaticPa ges/HowToContact Member.asp .
