How the Supreme Court Advanced Freedom in Arkansas

scotus-01Earlier this year, the Supreme Court of the United States issued a decision in the matter of North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners v. Federal Trade Commission, which will have profound effects on the operations of state boards and commissions in the years ahead. Because of this decision, if boards and commissions exercise rulemaking or legislative authority in the future, from now on they may face civil or criminal penalties. If the state of Arkansas wishes to avoid such liability, its lawmakers should make substantial structural changes in our state boards and commissions: these changes could also trigger substantial job creation and economic growth. In short, an intelligent reaction to this decision could both advance Arkansas’s economy and protect its citizens and its government from federal lawsuits. Read our new paper, How the U.S. Supreme Court Empowered Political Accountability and Economic Growth in Arkansas, to learn more.
