Perry and the TX state legislators are flexing their muscles to no avail. No state has the power to override a federal law. For these legislators to pass this bill and Perry to sign it, means they have lied about their love for the Constitution. If they loved the document, they’d abide by its Supremacy Clause. This is just more of their preening for the nutjobs in TX.

You have singed instead of signed. I’d rather Perry set it afire instead of signing it, though.

governing and politicking always overlap to an extent, but passing irrelevant laws just to prove a political point is pure opliticking at the taxpayer’s expense…

It’s what Republicans do…because governing iz hard. Well, except in TX where they govern a couple of months a year, and even then, they can’t manage to actually govern.

ok, I know it’s fun to bash Perry, but c’mon. Did you even read the article?

Point one: whether it stops feds or not, it stops Texas officials from reading email without a warrant. Prior to its passage Texas Rangers and Dallas police and everything between and around followed federal rules:
Warrant for email that has not been ‘opened’ or has sat in an inbox for over 180 days. Once you’ve read it or left it unread for six months no warrant required.

Now it’s warrant required, period. (Well, there are still a couple of loopholes, but they’re a lot harder to grab.) Texas law officials are annoyed but living with it.

Oh, and for majii: the supremacy clause does not matter in this case. Texas isn’t saying the Feds can’t. It’s saying state officials can’t. For a similar issue consider the states that have passed marijuana legalization laws.
