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 Update

Kentucky Bond Taxation

posted by Harriet McConnell @ 3:48 pm

This week the Supreme Court will decide whether to grant cert in the case of Kentucky v. Davis. Basically the question is whether the state of Kentucky can tax the state and municipal bonds of other states without taxing its own. The Kentucky Court of Appeals says no, that violates the dormant Commerce Clause. Will the Supreme Court decide to weigh in?

Check out the cert petition and cert response.

Still no word as of April 25.
