Tenth amendment town hall

Greetings from Plano, TX!  We are here today attending a Tenth Amendment Town Hall hosted by Texas Conservative Coalition.  With some current actions (or desired actions) of the U.S. Congress viewed as overstepping designated Constitutional authority, this amendment is receiving increased attention.

The Tenth Amendment specifically reads:

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.

State sovereignty is truly under attack.  This is critical for those of us who believe government closest to the people is most accountable to the people.

EstateofDenial.com shares concerns regarding any federal power grab.  As probate laws are state-specific, states – not the U.S. government or some cadre of unelected/unaccountable federal bureaucrats – are best equipped to address probate corruption and estate abuse.  States are the area of natural accountability and proximity to the problem.

As comments made this morning have already prompted thoughts on a new EoD column, stay tuned.  More to come on this issue.
