State and Local Governments

Students compare and contrast the powers and procedures of state and local governments. They discover how conflicts between the different layers of government are resolved and each level's responsibilities. Using the 9th and 10th Amendments, they determine the extent of the federal government's power over its citizens. They also compare the processes of lawmaking at the different levels.
