Center for Competitive Federalism | Presents White Paper to ALEC Conference

Published on: December 17, 2016

WILL President Rick Esenberg, WILL Senior Fellow and CCF Director Mario Loyola, and Federal Litigator Jake Curtis presented Loyola’s most recent white paper, A Common Cause: Uniting the States Against Federal Overreach, at the American Legislative Exchange Council fall meeting in November.

From the paper:

We urge state officials to begin the “correspondence” that James Madison hoped would happen in the case of looming federal tyranny. One starting point, we suggest, would be the negotiation and coordination of a short agreed text that sets for the principles that unite the states in defense of the Constitution, and the actions they pledge to undertake in their common cause.
