 Action Plan on HJR YY

Recently, House Representative Paul Opsommer introduced HJR YY
HJY YY would create a Joint Federalism Commission by amending our State Constitution and be charged with monitoring and reviewing federal laws and mandates to determine if they violate the Michigan Constitution or if they violate such areas as the 9th and 10th Amendments of the US Constitution. If the Commission determines a violation exists, the law will provide for an expedited process for the commission to then push appropriate legislation to nullify.

The second "why" that makes this legislation necessary is because of the increasing role of so called "Memorandums of Understanding," "Compacts," and other agreements between Michigan and other governments, most notably at the federal level.

Most voters are not aware of what a "Memorandum of Understanding" is, or that they can carry the formal force of law. In many cases such memorandums are created under dubious authority. In other cases, the legislature does vote to grant authority for a memorandum to be entered into, but then what the memorandum actually does often exceeds that authority, or delves into areas that are beyond the scope of the authorizing legislation.

At this point however, it is very difficult for the legislature to act to change things. HJR YY will require that all such memorandums have their language first presented to the commission, which can then reject it before the state formally enters into a binding agreement.

HJR is currently been assigned to the Judiciary Committee
Committees are where some legislation goes "to die" We cannot let that happen to HJR YY

The 1st step towards passage is to: Get legislation on the Committee Calendar

Please call these Judiciary committee members (listed below) and ask them to schedule a hearing for HJR YY

We are monitoring the Judiciary Committee Calendar and will notify when HJR YY is put on the calendar for a meeting.

Step two to passage: Show for the Committee meeting at our State Capitol
