National Guard deployments occur when the federal government requests them from the states for various deployments around the world.

But if Wyoming State Representative Tylor Lindholm has his way, they would only occur if and when congress actually declares war.

“Defend The Guard Act” or HOUSE BILL NO. HB0098 is sponsored by Representative(s) Lindholm, Barlow, Blackburn, Blake, Clem, Clifford, Duncan, Henderson, Hunt, Olsen and Pelkey and Senator(s) Biteman, Case, Hicks and Rothfuss

Versions of this bill have already been introduced in Hawaii, Oklahoma, Michigan, and West Virginia.

Mr. Lindholm was good enough to call into the Wake Up Wyoming morning show and talk to me about how this bill came to be and how he plans to get it passed.
