Tomorrow morning there will be a vote in the State Legislature of Nevada on AB329. This legislation essentially redefines the terminology and denies horses water on public land.
The State Constitution of Nevada recognizes Federal Authority of policy of management on public land and the State gives over that authority clearly in the state Constitution.
Oath of Office:
Oath of office.
Members of the Legislature, and all officers, executive, judicial and ministerial, shall, before they enter upon the duties of their respective offices, take and subscribe to the following oath:
I, ……………., do solemly [solemnly] swear (or affirm) that I will support, protect and defend the Constitution and government of the United States, and the Constitution and government of the State of Nevada, against all enemies, whether domestic or foreign, and that I will bear true faith, allegiance and loyalty to the same, any ordinance, resolution or law of any state notwithstanding, and that I will well and faithfully perform all the duties of the office of ……………., on which I am about to enter; (if an oath) so help me God; (if an affirmation) under the pains and penalties of perjury. [Amended in 1914: proposed and passed by the 1911 Legislature, agreed to and passed by the 1913 Legislature, and approved and ratified by the people at the 1914 General Election. See: Statutes of Nevada 1911, p. 458; Journal of the Assembly, 26th Session, p. 20 and Journal of the Senate, 26th Session, p. 37
Those continuing to propose these types of legislation fail to recognize Federal Authority and The State Constitution. The continued introduction of bills like this and SJR5 waste the time of the state Legislature and the public.
Perhjaps there is a bold state Legislator willing to ask that those that continue to waste time be held responsible through sanction or reprimand?
PLEASE do not be distracted by this and get those comments on the BLM strategy dovument sent in TODAY!
