State House Passes First Of Its Kind Bill That Bans Federal NDAA Indefinite Detention

• http://thefreethoughtproject.com, By Rachel Blevin

A state is considering a bill that would counter one law that is rarely mentioned by the mainstream media—which just happens to be the one that gives the president the power to enforce indefinite detention of American citizens—the National Defense Authorization Act.

While most states ignore the overreaching power granted by the NDAA, the state of Idaho is fighting back against it. The Idaho House of Representatives passed House Bill 473, the Restoring Constitutional Governance Act, in a landslide vote of 63-4 this week. The bill specifically targets the most egregious constitutional violations that are allowed by the NDAA:

Section 1021 of the NDAA gives the president of the United States the power to indefinitely detain individuals—including American citizens—without due process. It states that "Congress affirms that the authority of the President to use all necessary and appropriate force pursuant to the Authorization for Use of Military Force … includes the authority for the Armed Forces of the United States to detain covered persons … pending disposition under the law of war."
