Campfield has introduced SB411, the "Tennessee Balance of Powers Act."
This law sets up a state commission to determine if federal regulations are constitutional. If a regulation fails the test, the law authorizes the state to sue the federal government in the U.S. Supreme Court and to put the federal government on notice. Campfield's version also includes penalties for any federal agents attempting to enforce any nullified law, including arrest and imprisonment. Federal agents who arrest or detain suspects can be charged with kidnapping.
This source of the legislation, which has also been introduced in Mississippi and maybe some other states, is apparently the
U.S. Patriot Union "North American Law Center." (Here's the boilerplate, and here's their website.)
Someone told me the other day that Campield allegedly once had a contest with a local county commissioner to see who could introduce the most bizarre, outrageous legislation. If true, Campfield has clearly won, but nobody told him game over.
