Issues

Whether it is possible for the court to determine if a particular government function is integral and whether this test is faithful to the roles of federalism.

Holding

Rule

The court rejects as unsound in principle and unworkable in practice a rule of state immunity from federal regulation that turns on a judicial appraisal of whether a particular governmental function is “integral” or “traditional”.
