      Constitutional challenges to new state energy policies have been mounting in state and federal courts. This Article surveys the state of the relevant law, focusing on the dormant Commerce Clause and the Supremacy Clause, and draws five. The commerce clause of the Constitution: c. has been expanded by Supreme Court interpretations to give the U.S. government the power to regulate the general welfare of the nation.

Describe how the Supreme Court, under the supremacy clause of the Constitution, balances state and federal laws that may be wholly or partly in conflict. Explain how the Bill of Rights relates to business activities in the United States.

Let’s say, for example, that Congress sets the minimum wage at $ an hour.
