The article considers whether the Consumer Protection and Anti-Interest Rate Manipulation Act could survive a preemption challenge under recent court rulings in California. The bill would impose a supplemental tax on lenders such as national banks that include in their credit card agreement a universal default provision. The article explores the scope of state taxing authority that section 548 confers and the relationship between authority and preemption rulings. It concludes that such state tax should qualify as a legitimate exercise of state taxing.
