More on bills that can guard against sharia law in USA

Some more bills to prevent bad foreign laws from being applied in the US have been drafted in more states. For example, Missouri:
JEFFERSON CITY, MO. — Court rulings based on laws made outside the U.S. would be unenforceable in Missouri if those laws violate the state or U.S. constitutions, under a bill endorsed by the Missouri Senate.

Versions of the bill considered in previous years specifically prohibited Islamic Sharia Law, but the legislation endorsed Wednesday would affect all foreign legal codes.

The measure is sponsored by Republican Sen. Brian Nieves, of Washington. He says it targets the concept of Missouri courts using policies that come from outside the United States that violate constitutional guarantees.

Opponents say the bill's language may jeopardize trade agreements and contracts with businesses in other countries.

It needs more one more vote before moving to the House.
So the excuse made by opponents here is that it would impede on trade? Please. That's not as important as human lives in distress.

Then, there's a new bill sponsored in Oklahoma:
On Monday, the Oklahoma State Senate passed legislation that would prevent the use of religious or foreign laws in American courts.

Considered by some to be the "anti-Sharia" bill, House Bill 1060 passed the Oklahoma Senate on a vote of 40-3. An amendment to the bill was added. That amendment must be approved by the bill's author before going to the desk of the Oklahoma governor.

The original bill reads "Any court, arbitration, tribunal, or administrative agency ruling or decision shall violate the public policy of this state and be void and unenforceable if the court, arbitration, tribunal, or administrative agency bases its rulings or decisions in the matter at issue in whole or in part on foreign law that would not grant the parties affected by the ruling or decision the same fundamental liberties, rights, and privileges granted under the U.S. and Oklahoma Constitutions."
I hope all goes well this time, because these bills are crucial. In a way, New York already approved such a measure when they drafted a law to protect the rights of Rachel Ehrenfeld a few years ago.
