Great news! As reported by Nick Hankoff (in the Facebook status above), chair of the Republican Liberty Caucus of Los Angeles County, AB 351 has passed the Public Safety Committee thanks to the trans-partisan efforts by the ACLU of Southern California, Bill of Rights Defense Committee, Tenth Amendment Center, Republican Liberty Caucus, 99% Coalition, Occupy Oakland, Occupy Coachella Valley, Council on American-Islamic Relations, Japanese-American League, and many antiwar groups.
What is AB 351? Sponsored by Assm. Tim Donnelly (R-33th), AB 351 codifies non-compliance by California state agencies against federal agents' attempts to indefinitely detain Americans making it the most comprehensive non-compliance anti-NDAA bill in the country:
This bill would enact the California Liberty Preservation Act. The act would prohibit an agency in the State of California, a political subdivision of this state, an employee of an agency or a political subdivision of this state, as specified, or a member of the California National Guard, on official state duty, from aiding an agency of the Armed Forces of the United States in any investigation, prosecution, or detention of a person within California pursuant to (1) Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (NDAA), (2) the federal law known as the Authorization for Use of Military Force, enacted in 2001, or (3) any other federal law that could lead to the indefinite detention of a person within California, except as specified. The bill would also prohibit the use of state funds and funds allocated by the state to local entities on and after January 1, 2013, to engage in any activity that aids in implementing the NDAA, as specified.
This is a great victory, but the war against indefinite detention (aka Obama's Gulags) is not over.
