CHEYENNE — U.S. Rep. Cynthia Lummis is joining other Republican members of Congress in forming what they call the 10th Amendment Task Force.

The Wyoming Republican and 10 others plan to officially announce the new group today in Washington.

According to a release from Lummis' office, the task force aims to usher in a new era of federalism and will work to decentralize power from Washington back to states, local governments and individuals.

The 10th Amendment reserves powers for states that are not specifically granted to the federal government.
