First in the nation: Arizona senate committee passes 4th Amendment Protection Act to thwart NSA spying

from Activist Post:


On Monday, an Arizona state senate committee became the first legislative body in the country to pass a bill designed to thwart surveillance programs from the National Security Agency (NSA).

Senate Bill 1156 (SB1156), the Arizona 4th Amendment Protection Act, was introduced by Sen. Kelli Ward and 14 other sponsors and co-sponsors.

The bill faced its first hurdle today, with an important hearing and vote in the Senate’s Government and Environment committee, where it required passage by majority vote to move forward. After a lengthy debate with significant opposition from state agencies, SB1156 was passed by the committee with a vote of 4-2. One member was absent, not voting.

  • They killed off John Roll because he was securing Arizona’s rights as a independent state. Gabrielle Giffords WAS NOT the target that day.

    I hope the states keep telling the Federal Government to go pound sand. Everyone can see what the traitors in Washington are trying to pull off. I hope this catches on in a BIG way.

      Agreed, Mark. If there is to be a “best hope” for this republic then let it be in the hands of the states, working and acting in concert to secure liberty and justice for all Americans. If my state stands up for liberty, I shall stand with them. If my county sheriff stands for liberty and the US Constitution, then I shall stand with and support him with all I have. It is more than time that DC realized that they are most often the problem and not the solution.

    When is it expected to be signed into law? I will also celebrate when that happens…
