No surprise here, but Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has thrown his support behind an effort to amend the U.S. Constitution, which would allow two-thirds of the states to repeal any law or regulation of Congress.
Cuccinelli, a rising conservative star who has championed challenges to newly-enacted federal health care reform and EPA regulations on greenhouse gas emissions joins Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and legislative leaders of 11 other states backing the repeal effort.
The states involved to date: Virginia, Florida, Texas, Montana, Iowa, Georgia, Indiana, South Carolina, Missouri, Minnesota, New Jersey, and Utah.
Here is the repeal provision language:
“Any provision of law or regulation of the United States may be repealed by the several states, and such repeal shall be effective when the legislatures of two-thirds of the several states approve resolutions for this purpose that particularly describe the same provision or provisions of law or regulation to be repealed.”
Here is Cuccinelli’s statement on the issue:
“I am enthusiastically supporting the repeal amendment in order to restore the balance of power between the citizens and the federal government. Over the past several decades, no matter which party is in charge, the federal government has been eroding the authority of the states and the liberty of citizens. The Repeal Amendment will act as an important check against the ever growing power of the federal government.”
