Kansas legislators have given final approval to a resolution asserting the state's sovereignty against what many of them see as an overly intrusive federal government.

The Senate adopted the resolution on a 36-4 vote Monday, accepting a version approved by the House two weeks ago.

The resolution goes to President Barack Obama, congressional leaders and members of the state's congressional delegation.

The resolution says many federal laws may violate the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which says powers not specifically given to the federal government are reserved for the states.

The resolution says Congress should pass no more laws that threaten states with sanctions or a loss of federal funds if they refuse to take certain actions.
