In July, WILL announced the launch of the CCF at an event in Madison. The CCF engages in strategic litigation and public education to advance the “competitive” federalism established by the Constitution – a system in which the authority of both the states and federal government is carefully delineated and circumscribed and which is informed by the need to protect the liberty of persons and not the prerogatives of government.
The CCF is based at WILL in Milwaukee and the scope of its activities will be national. It seeks the best opportunities for meaningful litigation and will direct its educational efforts at think tanks and litigation centers throughout the country.
As the 2016 election winds down, many are or should be asking how new leadership in Washington will approach policy vis a vis state government and the challenges they face.
