National League of Cities v. Usery: The Tenth Amendment Is Alive and Doing Well
Percy, Billups P.
Tulane Law Review, 51, 1, 95-107, Dec 76
The Usery decision invalidated an act of Congress as exceeding the commerce power--extension of minimum wage and maximum hour provisions to virtually all employees of states and their political subdivisions. The ruling is a salutary one if it heralds the Supreme Court's recognition that a significant degree of political and economic autonomy for the states is indispensible. (LBH)
