|Garcia v. San Antonio Metro. Transit Auth.|
|Citation||469 U.S. 528 (1985)|
|Overturned||National League of Cities v. Usery|
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.
National League of Cities v. Usery overruled.
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”.
