Representative Richard Cebra (R-Naples) has submitted a Joint Resolution that will be voted on early this week. HP 1397, “Joint Resolution Memorializing The President of the United States and the United States Congress to Review Portions of the National Defense Authorization Act”, would send a clear message on behalf of the people they represent, that the Constitution is the supreme law of the land.
Although there are a large number of co-sponsors, giving it a strong shot at passage, we must not stand down. We need to act immediately as it could be voted on as soon as Monday. If your Representative and Senator are not on the co-sponsor list, please contact them and urge them to support this legislation.

If you are unsure of who your Representative and Senator is, please look it up at the official State Legislature website’s directory.
Once you have contacted your legislature, do not stop there. The work is not over. Spread this on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networking websites. E-mail the link to your friends, and encourage others to get involved. This is IMPORTANT.
The Tenth Amendment Center also offers three pieces of draft legislation regarding the National Defense Authorization Act. This Resolution is similar to the first piece, which is also a non-binding resolution.
There is also a non-compliance act, which would require all state agencies to refuse compliance with the federal government in enforcing the NDAA. The third piece of draft legislation is a nullification law, which would not only refuse compliance, but render the federal law void in Maine and impose penalties for enforcement.
All pieces of draft legislation can be found at the Liberty Preservation Act’s page .
If you feel strongly about any of the other draft legislation, please present the idea to your legislators. A non-binding resolution sends a strong message, but it’s only the first step towards taking a stand for our liberties and resisting unconstitutional overreach.
Any questions or comments, please contact Maine State Coordinator Chris Dixon at email@example.com.
