Legal Word of The Day: Commerce Clause

Today’s Legal Word of the Day: “Commerce Clause Power” Under the Constitution, Congress has the power to regulate the flow of Interstate Commerce (products going in and out states). However a new question arises “Does Congress have the power to regulate INTRA-state commerce? Meaning to control transactions at a local level, amongst small business owners in states, or regulate wages, labor, hours and trade practices? #scotus for the most part have adopted lassiez faire notion “hands off” but when the Great Depression hit the New Deal required manufacturers to play by the rules–no child labor nor employee discrimination. So when you think of the Commerce Clause, ask yourself if the government should also control INTRA-state commerce?
