Actually, the House Bill, HB1581, fails to nullify Sections 1021 and 1022 of the NDAA. Instead, it attempts to transfer that power from the president of the United States to the Governor of the state of Washington. Nothing against our great governor, but NO ONE should have that much power. We are a nation ruled by laws, not men. However, the Senate version does NOT transfer that power to anyone else, and implicitly nullifies Sections 1021 and 1022, and provides for a penalty of a felony for anyone in WA state that does not comply. Senator Bob Hasegawa was very smart to realize the danger in allowing Sections 1021 and 1022 to be codified into WA state law! Perhaps, that is because his family had to deal with the indefinite detention of Japanese-Americans during WWII. You are a true American, Senator! I heartily endorse your bill!!
