I'm starting to think the bill we just passed was lip service to the citizens here.
You are talking about the state constitutional amendment that passed this past November. That only applies to state law. It has zero to do with the feds.
In the U.S. constitution there is something called the Supremacy Clause. It states that federal law is the law of the land, thereby anything in the states laws or constitution contrary notwithstanding.
But no, that amendment wasn't purely lip service. It will affect the state laws. It just nothing to affect federal law.
