Some Missouri lawmakers want to take on the federal government.

New state Rep. Jay Barnes, R-Jefferson City, says he and 20 other House members are filing a joint resolution which calls for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution authorizing states to band together to reject overreaching federal laws and regulations.

Barnes said the amendment was non-partisan and non-ideological.
