Abstract:

As part of this urban policy for the next decade, the federal government must recognize and accept the inextricable links between cities and suburbs and the need for the primary intergovernmental relationships of these jurisdictions to be with their states. The federal government must cease to interpose itself as the dominant influence in the nation's cities. It has neither the financial capacity nor knowledge of local needs sufficient to play such a role. It must seek instead to reinforce the improved health of the local governments under the federalism policies of recent years by further liberating local urban governments from restrictive federal programs and regulations.
