The loss of state autonomy. "Free" federal assistance. The Reagan program. A shift in federal priorities. Regulatory reform. Private business. The need for diversity.
The Reagan administration is dedicated to strengthening our federal system of government. Issues of federalism are at the heart of our efforts to preserve liberty, draw strength from our regional diversity, and accommodate the realities of efficiently providing a wide variety of governmental services.____________________
