Agriculture has provided the factual and contextual fount of many significant constitutional law decisions in the past. Today, agriculture is the source of two significant constitutional contours in federalism and commerce clause power:

  • Resource issues such as water and wildlife that emphasize the dormant commerce clause
  • Federal environmental regulations of waters and land use that emphasize the scope and interpretation of the federal commerce clause.
This program features a speaker on each of these constitutional topics. After their presentations, a third speaker will comment on the presentations.
