Have we reached the time where defending the state and questioning federal authority is "going rogue"?
The article, though, is a good summary of the issue, and raises some interesting questions. For instance, what if the issue was reversed? That would be where the governor asks the AG to sue and the AG refuses. Let's take New Mexico, with a Republican governor and Democrat AG. If Gov. Martinez wants the state to sue the feds on one of these issues, can she force the AG to do so? Both are constitutional officers, but who calls the shots?
