We need more states proposing more legislation that limits what the feds can do. Good for them!

That's certainly one way to keep the Fed's out of your business! If only there were more ballsy states!

We will see what happens if the state actually tries a fed in court though, this legislation could be little more than the state puffing out their chest with little to back it up.

Good for New Hampshire.

Its times the States collectivily start standing up to Washington and forcing them to respect the 10th amendment.
