Introduced in House (01/04/1995)
Constitutional Amendment - Denies enforceability against any State or local government of: (1) any obligation imposed upon such government by or pursuant to a Federal law that becomes effective after the ratification of this amendment unless the Federal Government provides the funds needed to pay compliance costs; and (2) any condition similarly imposed upon the receipt of Federal assistance by such a government unless it is directly and substantially related to the specific subject matter of the assistance.
Allows waiver of such denial by a two-thirds recorded roll call vote of each House of Congress only if such obligations or conditions are specifically identified and imposed by a single, specified Act of Congress containing no other matter.
Provides for judicial review, but disallows as a judicial remedy any order or ruling that the Federal Government provide a State or local government with the funds needed to pay its compliance costs.
