South Dakota Moves Legislation to Veto Biden's Executive Orders

From the DailyWire: Legislation introduced in the South Dakota House of Representatives seeks to give the state’s attorney general the authority to review executive orders from President Joe Biden and potentially nullify any order deemed unconstitutional.

State Rep. Aaron Aylward (R-Harrisburg) introduced HB 1194, which is described as an act “to authorize the review of certain executive orders issued by the President of the United States.”

The process to potentially nullify an executive order, which by nature bypasses congressional approval, “begins with a review by the Executive Council of the Legislative Research Board, followed by a referral from the Council to the attorney general and the governor,” South Dakota news station KELO-TV reported last week. “Once the referral has been made, the attorney general may examine the order to determine whether the state can seek an exemption or declare it unconstitutional.”

The bill specifies that Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg could exempt South Dakota from any law or order “that restricts a person’s rights or that is determined … to be unconstitutional” if the law or order relates to the following:

  1. A pandemic or other public health emergency
  2. The regulation of natural resources
  3. The regulation of the agricultural industry
  4. The regulation of land use
  5. The regulation of the financial sector through the imposition of environmental, social, or governance standards, or
  6. The regulation of the constitutional right to keep and bear arms

Aylward told KELO-TV that the proposed legislation is not specific to Biden.

“This isn’t just a President Biden issue but rather an overall executive overreach issue that we’ve been experiencing for a long time,” Aylward said. “The U.S. Congress has abdicated their duty for a long time in different areas. This bill is simply setting up a process to nullify acts that would be unconstitutional. When looking at the U.S. Constitution, the President only has the powers that are laid out in Article II.”

REMNANT COMMENT: Think this is nothing to be concerned about? Think again! Already, the Biden Administration is signaling a coming crackdown on the freedom of Red State governors to call their own shots, so to speak, where vaccinations mandates and COVID restrictions are concerned. 

Remember when Donald Trump left those restrictions up to the governors? Well, don't count on old Uncle Joe to do anything quite so reasonable. Fellow "Catholic" and Transportation Secretary, Pete Buttigieg, says the Biden administration is already considering a mandatory negative COVID-19 test result for domestic air travel.

The policy can be summed up like this:

"You vill comply wis zee vill of zee Fuhrer or you vill suffer zee consequences. Vee vill keep you safe, vesser you like dis or not!" 

Looks like the regime is going to "keep Florida safe" first, by the way:
