Oklahoma Will Consider Legislation To Nullify EPA Rule-making Powers

EPABy Susan Kennison

The State of Oklahoma is turning to nullification, as well as the courts, to contend with federal Environmental Protection Agency overreach.

State Sen. Patrick Anderson recently submitted SB1167 to the Oklahoma Legislature. This bill will render void all rules imposed by the EPA and not passed by Congress. It is absolute nullification of that agency’s rulemaking in the state of Oklahoma.

Section 1.A. of the bill, as introduced, reads,

“The Legislature declares that the rulemaking authority of the Environmental Protection Agency is not authorized by the Constitution of the United States and violates its true meaning and intent as given by the founders and ratifiers, and is hereby declared to be invalid in the State of Oklahoma, shall not be recognized by this state, is specifically rejected by this state, and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in this state.”

    I love it. It may not survive the vote, but more and more talk of nullification is spreading through the Republic like wildfire and it can no longer be denied or contained.

    Regardless of the obamacare fiasco, I have a feeling several states are going to go even farther with their anti-obamacare legislation to legal nullification, at which point Obama has two choices:

    1. Threaten action against said states, which could provoke a battle between fed thugs and state police.

    2. Allow it because he has no legal basis to stop them because the entire law is unconstitutional, anyway.
