Kentucky Proposes Bill to Nullify Unconstitutional Foreign Laws in the State – Planet Free Will

By: Joseph Jankowski | Planet Free Will.com

The state of Kentucky has prefilled a bill for the 2017 legislative session would direct the state to refuse to enforce any foreign laws that conflict with U.S. or Kentucky constitutions, making such laws void within the commonwealth.

BR149, filed by Rep. Kim King (R-Harrodsburg) on September 14th, would direct state courts, arbitrators, administrative agencies, or other adjudicative bodies or authorities in the state to refuse to enforce a foreign law if doing so would violate rights guaranteed by the Constitution of the state of Kentucky or of the United States.

“It shall be the policy of this state to protect its citizens from the application of foreign laws when the application of a foreign law will result in the violation of a right guaranteed by the Constitution of this state or of the United States,” reads the bill.

A foreign law, according to the legislation, is any law, rule, or legal code or system established and used or applied in a jurisdiction outside of the states or territories of the United States.

As Mike Maharrey of the Tenth Amendment Center notes, BR149 utilizes James Madison’s strategy to deal with unwarranted acts – a refusal to cooperate, but simply applies it to foreign law as opposed to unconstitutional federal acts.

BR149 establishes a proper understanding of sovereignty, establishing the priority of state and federal law above foreign law, Maharrey writes.

Such a bill could prevent U.N. initiatives like the Strong Cities Network (SCN), that has been described as an overriding of the U.S. Constitution, from commanding inside a state.

BR149 will be given an actual bill number and assigned to a committee once the new legislative period begins in January.
