This paper explains how the states have seen their powers decreased in recent years, as the American national government has increased its power. In debating this issue, the writer discusses why it is important to look at the good and bad sides of this relationship. The writer discusses which spheres the powers have been increased - the federalization of criminal law, the control of dairy farming and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
From the Paper:"The National Government has started to decrease states' powers concerning criminal law, while increasing its power in these matters. The ABA Task force recently issued The Federalization of Criminal Law report which stated that the federalization of crime distorts the Constitution's structure of powers in a least three respects.
The federalization of crime represents a usurping by the Congress of police powers, which the Constitution leaves in the states and withholds from the federal government."
