Arizona SB1437 would set the foundation to nullify “indefinite detention” under Sections 1021 and 1022 of the 2012 NDAA which are still in effect today, and other claimed powers of war within the state. It also addresses domestic assassination and other laws of war. (learn more here) It passed the Senate 18-12 on 02-29-16 and the House Federalism Committee 4-3 on 03-16-16. It now moves to the House Rules Committee
