Section 4.3- Ideology, Policymaking, and American Federalism Mentor Note: In the section “National Intervention in State Functions,” you learn a few ways the national government encroaches on state powers. A good example of this was during the shift in American federalism from cooperative federalism to coercive federalism during the late 1970s.

Study Guide Survey of United States Government and Constitution Power can move from states to the federal government, and federal government to the states, depending on factors like national crises, judicial decisions, and negotiations over money/resources. Congress has been less likely to use the Necessary and Proper Clause to expand its power relative to the states, and strictly adheres to its enumerated powers. American federalism has been very rigid, and is unlikely to be changed by internal or external sources. We are seeing recent trends that show the national and state governments are refusing to share or overlap powers, as was seen under dual federalism.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
