About the Book
This book seeks to fill the existing void in this emerging area of law by addressing both the theoretical principles behind interstate compacts and the very practical implications of operating in the compact environment. It is intended to serve not only as a reference for lawyers, but also as a practical guide for legislators, drafters, compact administrators, students, and other parties interested in the development of, or subject to interstate compacts. Thus, some chapters provide a theoretical basis for compacts, while other chapters seek to provide a very practical perspective on compacts and the potential issues one may face in working with interstate compacts or litigating under such agreements. Finally, the book also seeks to provide both practitioners of the law and others with a perspective on the complexity of compacts and their interaction with other agreements, state laws, and federal laws.
What Others Have Said
"This comprehensive volume fills a major gap in the literature for legal practitioners and state government officers. The book explains the law of interstate compacts and provides examples of the use of the compact device to solve interstate problems and provide services. The volume is particularly timely in view of the large number of congressional preemption statutes enacted since 1965 removing powers completely or partially from states to achieve national regulatory uniformity in important fields including, banking, commerce, finance, insurance, and telecommunications."
