Legislation Curbing International Organizations such as WEF, WHO, and the UN

In May of 2024, the Louisiana Senate unanimously passed Senate Bill 133, a pivotal measure aimed at safeguarding the state’s autonomy against external influence from international organizations. This legislation prohibits the utilization of communications from select international bodies—namely, the World Health Organization (WHO), United Nations (UN), and the World Economic Forum (WEF), as a basis for action within Louisiana. It aims to effectively curtail the jurisdiction and authority of these organizations within the state, establishing Louisiana as a “sanctuary state” in matters governed by such entities. The bill was signed by the Governor of Louisiana on May 22nd and became effective after that date.

Unfortunately, states must constantly be playing defense against the overreach of federal authorities and now international organizations to prevent their undue influence. By restricting the implementation of rules, regulations, fees, taxes, policies, or mandates originating from these bodies, Louisiana aims to fortify its sovereignty and shield its citizens from external policies that may not align with the state’s interests and values.

The foundational principles of state rights, enshrined in the Constitution, underscore the importance of protecting state’s autonomy. In an era marked by increasing globalization and interconnectedness, it is incumbent upon states to assert their independence and resist encroachments on their sovereignty. Louisiana’s decisive action in pushing strong legislation such as Senate Bill 133 serves as a beacon of leadership in this regard, demonstrating a firm commitment to self-determination and local governance.

As we commend Louisiana for its proactive stance and longtime push for this issue, it is evident that similar measures may be warranted in other states facing similar challenges. Therefore, I advocate for the introduction of legislation like Louisiana Senate Bill 133 in Texas. By restricting the implementation of policies, mandates, and regulations from international organizations within our borders, we can assert our independence and safeguard our unique identity as a state.

As we look to the future, it is essential that Texas remains vigilant in defending its sovereignty against all forms of external interference. By enacting measures to protect against undue influence from international organizations, we affirm our commitment to the principles of liberty, self-determination, and state autonomy.

Now more than ever our states need to introduce and pass legislation which embodies a steadfast defense of state sovereignty and a reaffirmation of the fundamental principle that governance should emanate from the consent of the governed. As Louisiana charts its course as a beacon of autonomy, may other states follow suit in safeguarding their rights and freedoms from external interference.
