Congressman Pushes For States Rights

Alabama Congressman Robert Aderholt is sponsoring the Constitution Restoration Act, which is intended to return some power to the states that has been taken by the Federal judiciary:
WASHINGTON, DC -- Congressman Robert Aderholt (R-Haleyville) announced today in Alabama that he has introduced "The Constitution Restoration Act" (H.R. 3799), a bill requiring the federal courts to operate within the jurisdiction given to them by the United States Constitution as it pertains to the public acknowledgment of God as the sovereign source of law, liberty, and government.
I foresee some sticky issues with Constitutional rights and duties colliding. For Aderholt's perspective, you can read this interview with the Congressman by Jay at Stop the ACLU.
