Federal Preemption

This guide is intended to direct you to resources where you can find information regarding a federal preemption statute.  Many of you will start your research by using Wikipedia and Google Scholar.  Both are good starting places for doing research.  However, I think you will find some of the sources listed in this guide helpful in retrieving more in depth information on your topic.  Here is an example of what a citation to a statute looks like:


Safe Drinking Water Act Amendments of 1996,  PL 104-182, August 6, 1996, 110 Stat. 1613, 42 USC § 300g-1 et seq

PL 104-182 can be useful in retrieving the original text of the law in Westlaw or Proquest Congressional

42 USC § 300g-1 et seq can be useful in accessing the current version of the law in either Westlaw or LexisNexis Academic
