The Legislative Action Hub
President Trump has already threatened to arbitrarily withdraw federal funds from states that take action to oppose his unconstitutional, bigoted, or corrupt policies. It is crucial for legislators and executive officials to work together across state lines to create a support network that will be able to counter these threats to our federal system of government from the Trump Administration.
Scroll down to learn more about the importance of creating a Legislative Action Hub and to learn the latest news about what legislators across the country are doing to protect our rights by using federalist principles.
Why Do We Need a Legislative Action Hub?
The states have a tremendous amount of power under the Constitution to block or hinder unconstitutional or corrupt federal legislation. But the federal government also has a lot of power, primarily in the form of federal grants provided to states for everything from roads and schools to law enforcement. President Trump has threatened to arbitrarily cut federal funds to states that defy his unconstitutional policies. That is why legislators and executive officers from all states opposed to Trump's unconstitutional policies must coordinate to explore options like interstate grants and novel ways of entering into de facto interstate compacts without Congressional approval to create geographic safe havens where rights are protected, bigotry is not tolerated, and corruption is not allowed.
The Committees is in the process of reaching out to state legislators and executive officers to create a network that will allow states to protect their citizens without being bullied by a federal government lead by a President openly committed to pursuing illegal, bigoted, and corrupt policies.
