The States & Exports; Article 1 Section 10

What else can the State’s not do…

No State shall, without the Consent of the Congress, lay any Imposts or Duties on Imports or Exports,

California cannot charge an import/export tax on goods coming from other states  unless…

except what may be absolutely necessary for executing it’s inspection Laws:

Then its an Inspection Fee, sanctioned by the Feds, which is goes to…

and the net Produce of all Duties and Imposts, laid by any State on Imports or Exports, shall be for the Use of the Treasury of the United States;

The U.S Treasury. So the Federal Government has everything to gain and nothing to lose. About right. Does accomplish one thing, the States don’t have any motivation to interfere with the flow of goods since they get nothing out of it.

and all such Laws shall be subject to the Revision and Control of the Congress.

And Congress, has full control over the laws.

Next week is what’s known as the Compact Clause.

What are your thoughts about this?
