ABSTRACT
The article discusses the powers of the U.S. Congress, the nation's preemption doctrine, and legislative decision making as of May 2012, focusing on the federal legislature's power to differentiate between state and local regulations. The U.S. Constitution's Supremacy Clause, which deals with the power of the American Congress to preempt state and local laws, is also addressed. Several legal cases are examined, including the U.S. Supreme Court case Avery v. Midland County.
