CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Mike Enzi has introduced a constitutional amendment to redistribute power from the federal government to the states.

The resolution by the Wyoming Republican would give states the authority to repeal any federal regulation or law, which would provide states with the ability to act in the best interest of their citizens.

Enzi says states and businesses face thousands of rules, regulations and unfunded mandates from the federal government every year.

He says they have few options other than a backlogged court system to fight the rules and regulations.

Enzi’s proposal would allow federal laws and regulations to be repealed if two-thirds of states pass a resolution to do so.
