Rutherford Institute Calls on Va. Gov. to Join Fight Against NDAA

Written by 

Bob MarshallOn March 8 the state Senate of Virginia passed HB 1160, the bill that would  prevent the use of any state agency or member of the Virginia National Guard or Virginia Defense Force to participate in the unlawful detention of a citizen of Virginia by the U.S. government in violation of the state and federal constitution as set forth in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The Senate vote completed legislative action on the bill, which had already been approved by Virginia's House of Delegates where it was introduced by Delegate Bob Marshall (left). However, Governor Bob McDonnell has yet to act on this bill that has languished on his desk for a month.
