I don't have any links, but I'm wondering how everyone feels about how federal law effect and sometimes overrides state law. An example being that if states don't have a .08 alcohol level for DUI that they are denied funds for road maintenance and construction. I don't want to specifically focus on the DUI one, there are others related to education ect.
Should the federal government be allowed to control states in this way. Yes, I know that the states can deny to accept the money, but most states are in a financial bind currently and really need the help. And besides is it fair to make children pay (in regards to the educational funds) for something the state does?
How much autonomy should states have??
