Guiding Thought Question: Should the states be allowed to enact environmental policies that differ from the direction of the Federal Government? What is an advantage and disadvantage of states having independence to make individual policies?
Today's Learning Objective: Students will examine the role of state and local governments in the formulation of policy, and the more direct impact that smaller scale government can have on them. Students will take notes on the smaller forms of government, and then complete an assignment that examines the environmental actions of states across the country.

The federal government should establish a good minimum that all states have to follow. From there, the states could add on to those government wide requirements to suit their specific regions.

the state government should have to follow the federal governments lead because the federal government has agencies that give them the guide lines that would be beneficial to the environment.

States should be allowed to differ form federal government when making environmental decisions because they have a better idea of how to protect their land, resources and wildlife. Federal Gov should set regulations that states must follow but can build on.

i think that the federal government should keep a baseline standard of environmental conservation, but i also know that states are more familiar with their own lands and have a better understanding of how to protect them.

yes the states should be able to set stricter environmental laws than the federal government because they have a better idea of how to protect their land, resources and wildlife

If it's for the greater good of the US then they should be able to enact policies because the federal government thinks of the country as a whole and not usually just 1 state. An advantage would be more focused and disadvantage would be federal support.
