Sterling plans for Federalism Task Force as Attorney General
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE September 10, 2013
Attorney General candidate David Sterling today announced plans to create a Federalism Task Force if he’s elected Arkansas Attorney General. Sterling said the task force would research federal laws that appear to be unconstitutional.
“Arkansans are growing weary of an out-of-control federal government,” he said. “The government in Washington is involved in every aspect of our life: health care, religion, guns, private property, small business, and the list goes on. As Attorney General, I’ll organize a Federalism Task Force whose job will be to research federal laws that we believe violate the Tenth Amendment that grants broad powers to states and individuals. When we feel state authority and individual liberty have been violated by the federal government, we will file a lawsuit against Washington,” remarked Sterling.
Sterling says he will seek out aggressive attorneys who believe in a strict interpretation of the U.S. Constitution to staff the Federalism Task Force. “As Arkansas’ Attorney General, my job will be to stand up to the federal government and roll back this overreach that encroaches on our private property rights, religious liberty, and Second Amendment rights,” stated Sterling.
