    A federal proscription, not state.

    Which would not be the same as an export tax charged by them to another state.

    Is there another proscription that applies to the States?
    You're right, I just took a glance and thought it was what I was looking for. Now I'm thinking it was in the continental congress debates... Or constitutional conventions... Too tired to look right now. But I remember it being agreed that commerce between states should be free and open unless a product violates that states laws.

    I feel your pain brother. If we're just here to spit out what the law is and never question it, what debate is there to be had? Where's the fun?

    Hey Texas! Hurry up and secede so that you can deal with the floods yourself and spiral down into social, economic, and political disarray! It'll sure be a good laugh for me

    I think that by taxing our oil exports (remember that even imported oil is regularly refined or at least piped through Texas) and other products could really pump some money in to the state. No reason we should be giving away the fruits of Exxon's labor, for example, for free to Californians.

    But what say you?
    Since we tax things we want less of, I would be in favor of Texas being the only State that taxes it's exports. The less of Texas we get the better.

    The last thing we need is protectionism within our own borders. Just a disastrous proposition.

    No.

    That was easy.
