State AGs to Obama: Curb Federal Pre-Emption

The number one legal priority for business, we've been hearing for the last few years, is federal pre-emption. Corporations would rather live with one federal regulatory regime than the rules of 50 states -- even if a Democrat is the number one federal regulator.

Now, from the other side of the coin, state attorneys general are telling President-elect Barack Obama that pre-emption is their top priority too -- curbing it, that is. In a briefing paper sent to the transition team, the National Association of Attorneys General asks the next administration to resist expansion of federal pre-emption, urging instead that the traditional role of states in consumer protection be preserved.
