State Law Center

CELDF’s Community Rights State Law Center provides model state legislation and state constitutional amendments to people and groups working to expand rights-based, local self-governance authority.

While serving as models and templates for state legislation and constitutional amendments, the bills and amendments listed within the State Law Center should be reviewed by legal counsel licensed to practice in individual states, and the materials should be customized for each state within which the models are used. The materials within the State Law Center should not be construed to be the offering of legal advice or lobbying by CELDF.

The state constitutional amendments below are the ground-breaking efforts of the state Community Rights Networks, their respective communities who have been working at the local level, and CELDF. These amendments seek state-level change, envisioning the liberation of municipalities and communities to expand civil and political rights for individuals and communities, recognize the rights of nature, and elevate those rights above the “rights” currently claimed by corporations and other business entities.
