The increased use of state preemption intended to limit local lawmaking across a broad range of policies is a new phenomenon and educating and organizing elected officials, city attorneys and advocates are key to countering its abuse. Only when the national origins, aims and consequences of the rise in state interference are known and preemption is recognized as a deliberate strategy to weaken local democracy, can effective defensive efforts and offensive opportunities to protect and promote local problem solving can be organized and channeled.
