TRENTON — Insurance fraud. Drug possession. Conspiracy to distribute a controlled dangerous substance.

Those can be third-degree crimes in New Jersey. And this week a Sussex County legislator proposed adding another infraction to the list: Enforcing the federal health care law that was enacted last year.

The New Jersey measure (A4551), introduced Monday by Assemblywoman Alison Littell McHose (R-Sussex), would render the health care law "null and void" in New Jersey. And any federal employee or contractor trying to enforce it in the state would face at least a $1,000 fine and could face a prison term of up to five years, at a judge’s discretion.

McHose’s bill was copied almost verbatim from one offered on the Web site of the Tenth Amendment Center — a group that says the federal government should have very limited authority over states, and that states should be able to nullify federal laws when they feel the government has overreached
