HGov: Summer Assignment Chapter 3


Federalism
Our federal system divides powers among the national, state, and local governments. The U.S. Constitution gives considerable freedom to states to set up the kind of state and local governments that work best for their citizens. Federalism promotes national unity while allowing for diversity among the states. Federalism also allows states to operate as laboratories for public policy experiments. The way federalism works has evolved over time. During the era of dual federalism, national and state governments operated independently of one another. More recently, the federal government has become increasingly involved in state and local affairs.
