FEDERAL SUPREMACY OR COOPERATIVE FEDERALISM?

AFTER MAKING THE STATEMENT THAT "TITLE 23 OF THE UNITED STATES CODE HAS PROVIDED THE LEGAL BASIS FOR THE MOST SUCCESSFUL AND GREATEST PUBLIC WORKS PROGRAM IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD", THE FOLLOWING FUNDAMENTAL QUESTIONS ARE PROPOSED: WHAT IS THE CONCEPTUAL BASIS OF THE PROGRAM? WHAT ARE THE FEATURES THAT MADE IT SO SUCCESSFUL IN THE PAST? WHY IS THE PROGRAM SO DEEPLY INVOLVED IN LITIGATION? WILL THE FEDERAL-AID HIGHWAY PROGRAM AS WE KNOW IT TODAY CONTINUE OR WILL IT BE DRASTICALLY CHANGED? IN CONSIDERING THESE QUESTIONS, SEVERAL SUPREME COURT CASES ARE PRESENTED, WHICH ILLUSTRATE THE PRESENTLY OCCURRING PROCESS OF THE RESHAPING OF FEDERAL HIGHWAY PROCEDURES AND PERHAPS EVEN THE ORGANIC LAW ITSELF.
