The Declaratory Act

After repealing the Stamp Act, Parliament wanted to make sure the colonists knew that they were still beholden to the British government. So they passed the Declaratory Act in 1966. This Act stated that Parliament would always have the right to tax the American colonists without their consent. The Patriots were even more outraged at this Act than the Stamp Act!
