Zywicki on Preemption

Professor Todd Zywicki was a member of a distinguished panel examining the legal, economic, and policy issues surrounding the question of how much authority federal regulatory agencies have to preempt state law. At the center of the discussion were the oral arguments in the case Watters v. Wachovia Bank scheduled to come before the Supreme Court on November 29 in a case that is expected to impact both banking regulation and the issue of preemption itself.

The panel discussion, entitled Watters v. Wachovia Bank: The Roberts Court Weighs In on Preemption, was sponsored by the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research in Washington, D.C.
