CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - The Nevada Senate Committee on Legislative Operations and Elections is scheduled to deliberate on a resolution to claim sovereignty under the 10th Amendment of the United States Constitution.

Senate Joint Resolution 3 proposes the Nevada Senate claim sovereignty as a state, thereby only recognizing federal jurisdiction in the areas enumerated in the U.S. Constitution. It would order a cease-and-desist for all current mandates deemed beyond those enumerated powers.

Any future attempts by the federal government that are outside its enumerated powers would be prohibited, as would threatening civil or criminal action for failing to enact one of the non-enumerated mandates.

The resolution would be sent to the president, vice president, leaders of both houses of Congress and members of the Nevada delegation to be entered into Congressional Record.
