The Arizona Sentinel

Arizona steps up and tells the Federal government to butt out. 

HCR 2024


HCR 2024 stipulates that the state of Arizona is hereby claiming sovereignty under the 10th Amendment to the United States Constitution. 




The 10th Amendment to the Constitution states that “the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively or to the people”.


Black’s Law Dictionary defines sovereignty as the supreme, absolute, and uncontrollable power by which any independent state is governed; supreme political authority; paramount control of the constitution and frame of government and its administration; the self-sufficient source of political power, from which all specific political powers are derived; the international independence of a state, combined with the right and power of regulating its internal affairs without foreign dictation.  In other words, sovereignty is the power to do everything in a state without accountability – the power to make laws, to execute and apply them, to impose and collect taxes and levy contributions, to make war or peace, and to form treaties of alliance or of commerce with foreign nations.



·          Stipulates that the state of Arizona claims sovereignty under the 10th Amendment to the Constitution over all powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal government by the Constitution.   

·          States that this resolution serves as both a notice and a demand to the federal government to immediately cease and desist mandates that are beyond the scope of these constitutionally delegated powers.

·          Demands that all compulsory federal legislation that directs states to comply – under threat of civil or criminal penalties – or sanctions or requires states to pass legislation or otherwise lose federal funding be prohibited or repealed.

·          Requires the Arizona Secretary of state to transmit copies of this resolution to the following parties:

·          The President of the United States.

·          The President of the United States Senate.

·          The Speaker of the United States House of Representatives.

·          The Speaker of the House and the President of the Senate of each state’s legislature.

·          Each member of the Arizona Congressional Delegation.
