States should have the authority to repeal a federal rule or regulation if two-thirds of all states vote to do so to prevent overreach by the executive branch, and this bill proposes an amendment to the Constitution that’d let that happen.
Given the number of small states, it’d be unwise to allow a two-thirds majority of states to overturn federal rules and regulations as it’d interfere with executive branch agencies’ ability to do their jobs.
