 @JamesPowell2 Mr. Powell, While your statement is partially true, it is not completely correct. Federal law does supersede state law, but only where the Federal government has been given the right to act by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The 10th Amendment states "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."So, if the power has not been delegated to the "United States" by the constitution, then it is reserved for the states and "the people" exclusively. The current problem is the federal government overstepping those authorities granted to them by the Constitution, which is why the states are now passing nullification statutes.
