Senate Roll Call 460 on 2009 Senate Concurrent Resolution 4
Hooray! One more step toward reclaiming our liberty!
Yes, this bill should pass. The federal government continues to burden the states with unfunded mandates while encroaching on the rights of citizens. Something must be done to stop the feds.
