Obama’s Preemption Directive Seen as Victory for Consumers

The Las Vegas Sun editorialized, “It is only common sense that many federal laws, those on civil rights among them, should be consistently and strictly enforced throughout the country.” However, “many federal laws not covering constitutionally protected freedoms should stand only as a minimum standard.” The paper said, “Regulators under Bush often wrote “preemption” language into regulations, which meant the laws would be standard across the country because they preempted any relevant state law.” Now, Obama has “directed his administration to abandon the freewheeling preemption policies of the Bush administration.” Concluding, the paper said, “Obama’s directive is a victory not only for states, but also for consumers.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
