Assessing the Impact of the Supreme Court’s Decision on Future Legislative Proposals
The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in the Affordable Care Act case raised questions about the constitutionality of existing and proposed federal programs that seek to promote federal policies by threatening to withhold funds unless the states meet certain requirements. For example, to what extent can the federal government tie federal educational funds to state accommodation of children with disabilities, tie law enforcement grants to state provision for indigent defense, or tie highway funding to license eligibility criteria?
Please join The Constitution Project and Arnold & Porter for a webinar on Thursday, January 31, 2013, at 12:30 p.m. ET to discuss how the Court’s decision affects Congress’ ability to act through its commerce clause, taxing and spending powers. The webinar will feature Robert Weiner, a senior partner at the law firm of Arnold & Porter, who served as Associate Deputy Attorney General at the Department of Justice, overseeing the defense of Obamacare from the outset of litigation through the arguments at the Supreme Court.
Video of the webinar is now available here.
