    Home rule and preemption have been a source of legal issues and political tension since the founding of our country. They continue to present major issues for local governments trying to govern "locally," state and regional government agencies, industry representatives, and non-governmental organizations and their constituencies. Recent cases on hot-button issues such as fracking and genetically modified organisms (GMOs) reveal a varied national landscape of competing authorities and regulations.

    In ths program, our expert panel will:

    • Provide a general view of preemption and home rule, where the question of what level of government has what level of authority has become so important, with contemporary examples
    • Expand on home rule, preemption and fracking cases in New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio
