Virginia lawmakers agree to reject NDAA


Four months after US President Barack Obama authorized the US military to indefinitely detain American citizens without charge or trial, lawmakers in Virginia have voted to refuse to abidy by the provision of the NDAA.

The Virginia legislature voted this week to approve what looks to be the final version of House Bill 1160, an act that authorizes law enforcement agents within the state to reject the controversial detention provisions that were signed into US law on December 31, 2011 when President Obama inked his name to the National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA.

B 1160 had previously cleared both the state’s House and Senate, but Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell reportedly refused to sign his name to the bill in its original form.
