Just wanted to let you know that the Tennessee Legislature passed HJR587 today sponsored by Representative Kevin Brooks. It passed by a huge margin with a 72 to 23 vote.
Senator Mike Bell will now take the ball as the sponsor of the Senate version. The next step is to get Mike Bells HB3572 passed. Give him a call and tell him to step out boldly and face what will certainly be a room full of giants!
PLEASE EVERYONE call Representative Brooks office and thank him for his hard work and dedication in getting this resolution passed. I knew eventually Representative Brooks would step up and he has! Let’s use his expertise now to get rid of some of the harmful bills.
We need to work hard to get bills with even more punch passed and to repeal or nullify bills on the books that are having negative affects on our property rights and state sovereignty.
We have already found one such bill. Passed in 2009 during the 106th session. SB1919. We are looking for more!
Here is list of those that voted Yes and those that voted No.

It makes you wonder what in the world would make anyone vote NO on such a strong issue as getting the United Nations and ICLEI out of Tennessee! It is beyond me! To have any NOs on a sovereignty issue begs me to ask them with whom are they aligned? When they took that oath of office, to whom were they swearing their allegiance? I guess only time will tell!
