We had Senator Al Melvin on the Wake Up Tucson show this morning.  We talked about the unique opportunity Arizona has to become a safe haven for enterprise. California is driving there business away and Texas has been opening doors for the past 10 years. Texas implemented tort reform, a relaxed regulatory environment and favorable tax status for enterprise.  It’s working.  The jury is out as to if Arizona’s conservatives can get it done and start turning the tide.

Even without our Tucson business communities support, we have leaders up north that are trying to turn the tide. Let’s hope Arizona can but the ‘open for business’ sign up. Read about SALC’s lobbing HERE.

AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry joined state Rep. Brandon Creighton and sponsors of House Concurrent Resolution (HCR) 50 in support of states’ rights under the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

“I believe that our federal government has become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of our citizens, and its interference with the affairs of our state,” Gov. Perry said. “That is why I am here today to express my unwavering support for efforts all across our country to reaffirm the states’ rights affirmed by the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. I believe that returning to the letter and spirit of the U.S. Constitution and its essential 10th Amendment will free our state from undue regulations, and ultimately strengthen our Union.”

Perry continued: “Millions of Texans are tired of Washington, DC trying to come down here to tell us how to run Texas.”


A number of recent federal proposals are not within the scope of the federal government’s constitutionally designated powers and impede the states’ right to govern themselves. HCR 50 affirms that Texas claims sovereignty under the 10th Amendment over all powers not otherwise granted to the federal government.

It also designates that all compulsory federal legislation that requires states to comply under threat of civil or criminal penalties, or that requires states to pass legislation or lose federal funding, be prohibited or repealed.

    “I believe that our federal government has become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of our citizens, and its interference with the affairs of our state” Agreed. So where was he when Bush and the GOP Congress enacted the biggest entitlement program since the Johnson Administration-the prescription drug benefit? Republicans have been in the White House 28 of the last 40 years, ruled the House from ’94 to ’06, and had control of the Senate for most of the last 28 years. Where were all the brave Republicans when the national debt increased by $1.5 Trillion during the Bush years? Such duplicity is outrageous if its not challenged.
