Governors Assn Report on Preemptions of State and Local Powers
From the National Governors Association press release:
"Increasing federal preemptions of state and local responsibilities, authorities and revenue sources require a new strategy involving stakeholders at every level of government, according to a report issued by an Academy panel. Prepared for the National Governors Association, the report highlights complex issues that preemptions create and includes practical recommendations for our nation’s leaders to explore. The Academy panel found that federal preemptions and the imposition of unfunded mandates are increasing and likely to continue. Against this backdrop, the panel urged that federal preemptions be used only as a last resort with intergovernmental partnerships emphasized as an alternative."
