Power from the people

The White House assault on state's rights continues.
Congress is about to enact a new energy bill that would severely limit the power of coastal states and municipalities to veto the construction of massive, and potentially dangerous, liquified natural gas (LNG) terminals in their harbors. If it becomes law, federal authorities would gain the power to overrule states and municipalities in choosing locations for these terminals.
Think of this in context of the Raich and Kelo decisions. Then remember Pat Robert's known record to date. Still having trouble imaging the new federal police state?
