Frequently Asked Questions

Do local governments have to follow federal laws?

That being said, local governments may tinker with federal laws in a number of situations—federal laws, depending on the underlying subject matter, act as a framework for which states are required to follow.

Does the federal government give money to local law enforcement?

To be sure, as with most things, the federal government gives, but it also attaches strings to what it gives. Therefore, a great many requirements were placed on the acceptance of these funds. Still, the primary emphasis was upon local law enforcement.

What is federal law in the United States?

Federal law is created at the national level, and applies to the entire nation (all 50 states and the District of Columbia), and U.S. territories. The U.S. Constitution forms the basis for federal law; it establishes government power and responsibility, as well as preservation of the basic rights of every citizen.

How does the federal government limit the power of the States?

Federal power is limited. If there is no interstate commerce involved and the matter does not involve individual rights under the Constitution, the states have the right to control their affairs. The federal government also has very limited authority to commandeer state personnel to enforce federal law.
