The one-day event, scheduled for Feb. 16 at the UC Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco, will provide an in-depth exploration of the boundaries, as well as opportunities, of federal regulation of local government activities. The symposium is co-sponsored by the Municipal Law Institute of the League of California Cities®
The United States Constitution grants limited powers to the federal government and reserves all other regulatory powers to the state and local public agencies. The new Presidential Administration has recently imposed new and modified regulations and signaled changes in enforcement of federal law —both of which significantly impact local governments. In particular, Executive Orders from the Oval Office have changed federal policy related to the environment, international trade, and immigration enforcement, just to name a few. Some local agencies welcome the increased federal involvement and others resist.
