Supreme Court Commentaries
Constitutional Law | Law
The Supreme Court, in a 6-3 decision, upheld two counties' flow control ordinances that require trash haulers to deliver waste to government-owned processing facilities. The Court determined that the Commerce Clause is not violated by laws which favor state or local government entities but treat all private entities equal.
