Preemption, Nth Part

The National Conference of State Legislatures has expressed concern about the "silent tort reform" of federal agencies seeking to preempt state tort law.  Among the NCSL's efforts is the Preemption Monitor [PDF], a report including a number of federal actions that may preempt state law, ranging from laws regulating ingredients in methamphetamine to immigration reform measures.

The Preemption Monitor reviews recently enacted federal  legislation that preempts state authority, describes pending legislation  that would preempt state authority if enacted, and examines U.S.  Supreme Court cases that have implications for state authority.  It also  tracks the status of federal preemption activities in Congress, the  executive branch, the Supreme Court and the international arena.
