Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness
SERVICE BEFORE SELF
As a senior pilot of a KC-135 tanker, who deployed in service to our Great Nation 9 times over a 22 year military career, Major Jay Steagall (Ret.) knows up close and personal the reason we fight for the freedoms we love.
A resume, leadership, and character built from years of hard work and willingness to give his all for what he believes in, Jay Steagall took an oath to defend our nation from all enemies, foreign and domestic. That Constitutional oath was kept in his military service, and he continues to be true to that oath in his service in the Oklahoma House of Representatives.
Jay Steagall also is equipped with a degree from Oklahoma State University in Agricultural Economics, and years of experience in building several businesses to success, one right on Main street of his hometown of Yukon, Oklahoma.
As Chairman of the States Rights Committee, Jay Steagall is working every day to ensure that our state, and others who are like minded, have the tools to ensure that the powers given to the federal government are 'few and defined' as the Founders intended. The exploding growth of bureaucratic and federal encroachment on state's rights has got to stop - and it stops right here - at the border of our Great State of Oklahoma!
“...NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE 1ST SESSION OF THE 58TH OKLAHOMA LEGISLATURE:
THAT Oklahoma hereby asserts sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over all powers not otherwise enumerated and delegated to the federal government by the Constitution of the United States.
THAT this resolution shall serve notice to the federal government of our intent to maintain the balance of powers where the Constitution of the United States established it.
THAT we intend to ensure that all federal government agencies and their agents and employees operating within the geographic boundaries of Oklahoma, or whose actions have an effect on the inhabitants, lands or waters of Oklahoma, shall operate within the confines of the original intent of the Constitution of the United States.”
