Two Neo-Confederate bills held in Senate because they violate the Constitution

Good to know that somebody pays attention to the posts we do here. The legislature's staff attorneys have advised Senate leadership that two Neo-Confederate bills violate the Constitution, and those bills have been held. Senate bills barring federal law efforts stall:

Senate Bill 1093 by Republican Sen. Chester Crandell of Heber requires federal agents to register with the local sheriff.

Senate Bill 1290 by Sen. Judy Burges of Sun City West says the sheriff is the senior law enforcement officer in a county and allows that person to refuse to give federal agents permission to makes arrests or searches.

Senate President Andy Biggs held the bills in the Rules Committee Monday after the committee's attorney said they likely ran afoul of the supremacy clause of the U.S. Constitution.

Ya think! There are plenty more of these unconstitutional bills from our lawless legislature working their way through committees. Hopefully staff attorneys will shoot down these other bills as well.
