Questions related to any laws enacted by any of the 50 states in the United States. Use the [united-states] tag alongside this.

In United States political theory and jurisprudence, each of the 50 States in the Union (the United States), has a sovereign right to enact its own legislation. This legislation must not conflict with the United States Constitution, or any laws that it allows the United States Congress to enact. If it does, then federal courts may declare them unconstitutional, which makes them void and useless.
