Nationalizing Public Health Emergency Legal Responses

James G. Hodge (Arizona State University), Nationalizing Public Health Emergency Legal Responses, 49 J. L. Med. & Ethics (Forthcoming, 2021):

The fight for public health primacy in U.S. emergency preparedness and response to COVID-19 centers on which level of government—federal or state—should “call the shots” to quell national emergencies? Competing and conflicting priorities have contributed to a year-long federalism firestorm. As the melee subsides, a more dominant federal role is a predictable, long-term consequence in the battle plan for the next major public health threat.
