Dear Honorable Kansas State Senators
State House of the Kansas Senate
Topeka, KS 66612
I am writing to ask for your support of Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 1615 sponsored by Senator Mary Pilcher-Cook. This very critical bill supports our Constitution’s 10th amendment.
SCR1615 is a concurrent resolution “claiming sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over certain powers; serving notice to the federal government to cease and desist certain mandates; providing that certain federal legislation be prohibited or repealed.”
This resolution asserts the State’s – and the Kansas citizens’ – sovereignty from, and supremacy over, the federal government under the 10th amendment to the U.S. Constitution. In short, the resolution states that Kansas will no longer be forced to accept every dictate from the U.S. Government against our will.
The 10th amendment of the Constitution states “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
Please also be reminded of the words of Thomas Jefferson:
“I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground: That ‘all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States or to the people’. To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specifically drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power, no longer susceptible to any definition.”
