I strongly support this legislation... I attempted something similar a couple months ago with my "Justice to the Department of Justice Act" but this has the same intention and I will vote for this

This really isn't much of a change in the current system; it just puts it on paper.

It ensures that if a federal law is being enforced on a region which has passed a law or is engaging in an illegal activity, that the federal officials can't interfere with the functioning of the regional government with regards to all the activities it engages in that aren't in violation of federal law.

Wormyguy's amendment has passed.


I am thinking maybe we should state the enforcement mechanism within the law here, rather then have to create a second statute to do that.

What penalties should we use to enforce this?  What do Senators find appropriate?

Sorry Yankee - I'm more of a big picture sort of guy. I haven't the slightest on how we should enforce this.

A normal lawsuit by the region if they feel this law is being violated?

What do you mean by a "normal" lawsuit? Is this some kind of injunction? Is there criminal penalties here?

Quote from: Possible Amendment
The Protection of Legal Regional Functions Act

A: No federal official, when engaging in an effort to enforce federal law, may prohibit, obstruct or prevent in any way shape or form the functions of a Regional Government, according to their laws, that also aren't in violation of Federal Law.

B: Failure on the part of a government official to follow the above statute can be dealth with in the following fashion:
              1. The Region targeted may sue the official in Federal Court, in accordance with the constitution, to seek an injunction against the official's actions to halt the obstruction of legal government functions.
              2. The Senate shall investigate the activities and determine whether or not further punitive actions need to be taken against the official, such as the impeachment of said official, based on the actions taken by said official and the cirumstances in which it occured.


How is this?
