Interstate Compacts and DIY Federalism

BTC - Ilya Shapiro's analysis of Goldwater Institute report.   ; )
Reinvigorate the Reserved Powers of the States
Remember the REAL ID Act, the federal government’s attempt to create a national identification card through state driver’s licenses? REAL ID never was carried out because 14 states refused to comply. The Supreme Court has ruled the 10th Amendment prevents the federal government from “commandeering” or forcing state officials to implement federal policies. In “Federalism DIY,” author Nick Dranias writes there are many other areas where the federal government has fooled states into helping to carry out federal mandates when they don’t have to.
BTW...You still have time to help OKie Kaye Beach out of her driving-while-unrenewed case.
