    Default Montana House Votes to Nullify Endangered Species Act

    Montana House votes to nullify Endangered Species Act


    Tenth Amendment Center
    February 19th, 2011


    from the Associated Press:


    The Montana House has overwhelmingly endorsed a plan to disregard the federal law protecting endangered and threatened species.

    Republicans enthused by Gov. Brian Schweitzer’s recent tough talk on wolves led a 61-39 vote Saturday to nullify the federal Endangered Species Act in Montana.

    Schweitzer recently encouraged ranchers to shoot protected wolves harassing their livestock. But the governor says he doesn’t support nullification.

    The bill faces one more usually procedural vote before it passes the House.



    Actions speak louder than words.

    State vs. Federal: The Nullification Movement
    Because the Supreme Court has for many years interpreted the Constitution in a manner to further empower the federal government, states are moving to take power back from the feds through a growing and vibrant nullification movement. By Patrick Krey

    Nullification in a Nutshell
    The modern-day nullification movement has as its genesis the principle of federalism and the writings of James Madison and Thomas Jefferson, in particularly the famous Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions of 1798, supporting the right of states to nullify unconstitutional federal usurpations.

    It is interesting that the governor says that the state can disregard federal law but he doesn't believe in nullification. Maybe he believes in nullification that suits his interests. I don't know.

    As long as the effect is the same. I'm just glad the states are getting courage to fight the Federal Government.
