Senate Bill 97: Makes the State and Federal Constitutions Supreme
Sponsors:
Senator Regier
Summary:

If passed, this bill would make "void and unenforceable" court, tribal, or administrative rulings based on foreign law that interfere with "fundamental liberties, rights, and privileges granted under the Montana constitution or the United States constitution." The purpose is to protect Montana citizens from harmful application of foreign law. International treaties (such as the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child or the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities) threaten American sovereignty and parental rights.
