Frequently Asked Questions

What are federal laws?

What are Federal laws? Federal laws are rules that apply throughout the United States. These laws apply in every state, such as: Federal anti-discrimination and civil rights laws that protect against racial, age, gender and disability discrimination Federal criminal laws such as laws against tax fraud and the counterfeiting of money

What are the economic laws?

Economic Laws are Statements of Cause and Effect: Economic laws, like scientific laws, are statements of cause and effect. They attempt to state the effects that will follow from particular causes. Unfortunately in economic affairs many factors operate simul­taneously and it is impossible to isolate each factor to find out its effects separately.

Are there any laws on the federal level that are problematic?

While there are many laws on the Federal level that are problematic, my vote goes to the US Patriot Act. I think that there are very few laws on the books that are more of an affront to what the United States used to stand for, than the Patriot Act.

What are some examples of laws created by the federal government?

Specifically, the U.S. Congress has created a few sets of legislation covering entire areas of law, such as immigration. Also, a few others have been reserved for the federal government by the Constitution, such as bankruptcy and patent laws.
