The Ins and Outs of Executive Branch Federalism
Presented as Part of CSG's FREE Civics Education eCademy Series
Tuesday, May 19, 2 p.m. EDT
One of the hottest topics in state capitals from coast to coast is the subject of federalism; ranging from fears about debilitating cutbacks from already-committed federal dollars to questions about how to respond to a broad use of federal branch executive authority. Charged with advancing the role of the states in America’s federal system, the CSG Federalism Task Force is pleased to present a three-part Civics Education Series. This, the first of three eCademy events on federalism's impact across the branches, will examine the current relationship between the executive branch and state governments with a view toward providing a fuller understanding of the duties, powers and limitations inherent in our federal system.
