The Federalism Project
Publications Events

The AEI Federalism Project conducts and sponsors original research on American federalism, with particular emphasis on federal and state business regulation, legal developments and the role of the courts, and the prospects for rehabilitating a constitutional federalism that puts states in competition for productive citizens and businesses. Through its AG Watch, the Federalism Project monitors and comments on the increasingly active role of state attorneys general.

The AEI Federalism Project disseminates its research results and opinions through frequent conferences and other public events; through the Federalism Outlook, a newsletter written by the Project’s Director, Michael S Greve; through its website; and through books and publications in scholarly journals.

Supreme Court Federalism Cases, October Term

posted by Michael Greve @ 1:19 pm

The newly installed Roberts Court has its work cut out. Among the 41 cases scheduled for argument so far are a bunch of federalism-related matters. These range from the momentous (such as the already-argued Gonzales v. Oregon, involving Oregon’s “assisted suicide” statute) to the highly technical (e.g., the determination of a banking association’s state “citizenship,” Wachovia Bank v. Schmidt). We await the outcomes with great interest and anticipation. For now, we thank our lucky stars for a Chief Justice who will hit this treacherous ground running.
