states start to stand up

add this to the list of things that states are doing to stand up to the feds.  perhaps they will also stand up the the cap and trade mandates?
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

That's what I am hoping for, if it passes in the senate. From what I've heard of a few details, this would mandate that every state adopt building codes that are currently practiced in California, in effect making building codes subject to federal standards.

There's a small glimmer of hope that some states will say NO. Enough of the BS.
