Federalism 2.0
“[T]he Constitution divides authority between federal and state governments for the protection
 of individuals … Federalism secures to citizens the liberties that derive from the diffusion of
 power … By denying any one government complete jurisdiction over all the concerns of public
 life, federalism protects the liberty of the individual from arbitrary power.”
                                                         – new york v. united States (1992); Bond v. united States (2011)

Sadly, the powers once reserved exclusively to the States have been usurped by Federal laws and
regulations, a trend that has diminished individual liberty. This ever-encroaching Federal leviathan
shows no signs of slowing down and creeps ever further into the daily lives of the American citizenry.

Please join us at the Federalism 2.0 Summit, where top state legislators from across the country and
conservative Members of Congress will meet to discuss the following critical issues:

•	   Where does the proper division between the federal and state government lie?
•	   How can Conservatives re-establish the clear lines of distinction?
•	   What role does Congress play in exacerbating this situation?

We invite you to participate in this unique event as a discussant.
