South Dakota GOP Introduces Legislation That Would Allow State to Nullify Biden Executive Orders

Will be deemed "an unconstitutional exercise of legislative authority by the President”

South Dakota’s Republican-controlled House is introducing legislation that would allow the state to nullify President Biden’s executive orders if it determines they are unconstitutional.

“The Executive Board of the Legislative Research Council may review any executive order issued by the President of the United States, if the order has not been affirmed by a vote of the Congress of the United States and signed into law, as prescribed by the Constitution of the United States,” the bill’s text reads.

The bill sets up a process for reviewing the president’s executive orders, which would be submitted to the governor and attorney general so that the attorney general could “determine whether the state should seek an exemption” from the order or have it “declared an unconstitutional exercise of legislative authority by the President.”

The bill targets orders that would “restrict a person’s rights,” specifically pointing to orders related to a “pandemic or other public health emergency” and “the regulation of the constitutional right to keep and bear arms,” among other topics.

South Dakota has frequently stood out from national and state governments amid the coronavirus pandemic, with Gov. Kristi Noem opting for a more relaxed public health approach that resisted strict lockdowns and mask mandates.

“South Dakota is not New York City,” Noem said of her approach. “Our sense of personal responsibility, our resiliency and our already sparse population density put us in a great position to manage the spread of this virus without needing to resort to some of the measures we’ve seen in some of these major cities, coastal cities and other countries.”

Biden has set a record-shattering pace for executive orders in the first few weeks of his presidency, many of which have been aimed at curbing the yearlong pandemic.

Noem’s office did not immediately respond to the Washington Examiner’s request for comment on whether the governor was aware of or planned on signing the new legislation.

Who is gonna determine the constitutionality? The Supremo’s -Bwahahahahahaha” Heck, I doubt any of them ever read it. (State or Federal) They’re (Federal) the ones that gave the cops the right to shoot first, ask questions later with sovereign immunity. How about open cop thievery with asset forfeiture – course they do need cappuccino machines to go with their donuts- , how about Obummer Care as a tax (lol)…. the only part of the constitution they’ll have pat is the 5th amendment when / if they think they need it.

IMO almost every law passed since 1900 is likely unconstitutional. The Federal Reserve, the gun laws for sure. The UnPatriot Act,,, the NDAA,,, and the Domestic terror act they seem intent on passing today.

Legislators that sponsor OBVIOUS unconstitutional bills should be cast out. Course if they did that today,,, there might be only one or two left. May not be a bad thing though…

The whole country slipped into Dark Age, with zero% of recovery…Every empire has its own ” small golden age”, 1° arc degree in 72 years…The US had 244 years, that’s about 3° + ….How much will have Russia? It will rise up in 1/3 of China….By then, America will be in deep Dark Age….
