Tick Segerblom Blocking Vote on Nevada Liberty Preservation Act

Activist Post; April 2, 2013

When PANDA Nevada's State Team Leader, Chris Corbett, met with Senator Segerblom last week, the Senator laid out a challenge:

"If people really care about this bill, they'll call me."


Section 4 makes it unlawful for federal officers, agents, contractors or employees and state officers and employees to implement or attempt to implement sections 1021 and 1022 of the NDAA and imposes criminal penalties for doing so. 
Section 6 requires the Director of the Dept of Public Safety or other agency of this State to provide prompt notice to the Governor and Legislature of any attempt or request by a federal officer or agent, etc. to implement these sections of NDAA.
