    Sounds like the State of Georgia will collect all federal tax money from its residents and businesses. Then report these deposits to the IRS, so that the people are not penalized for late payment or nonpayment. The state will then review whether the federal government is taking this money in for Constitutionally appropriate reasons and purposes. They will only release the money for those proper costs.

    Georgia is not doing anything. This is a bill introduced by one of their state legislators named Bobby Franklin. It has not moved forward at all in the Georgia House.

    Franklin basically makes it his pet project to introduce tons of bills which would attempt to get Georgia to seize powers away from the federal government. One of his bills proposes that Georgia levy taxes on the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. Another one would put restrictions on the federal government's commerce clause power within the state. He dreams up a lot of bills like this that end up going absolutely nowhere.

    We don't have to get into one of these tiffs with them but we can pass an amendment that would force all crimes charged by the federal government to a citizen of the United States to be tried in state courts only. This way the state judiciary can evaluate the guilt or innocents of the person being charged and evaluate the constitutionality of the federal law itself. If it is found unconstitutional then enforcing that federal law within that state would be useless from that point forward. It would effectively nullify that federal law in that state.
