Text posted for Ed Emery's Sovereignty Commission bill

Last night, I wrote about the bill sponsored by Sen. Ed Emery, R-Lamar, which would create a sovereignty commission in Missouri to keep the federal government from stepping on states' rights.

Of course, the term sovereignty commission has a different meaning to those who remember when the Mississippi Sovereignty Commission played a key role in fighting civil rights legislation and doing its best to keep Jim Crow the law of the south.

The text for SB 119 has been posted and can be found at this link.
