Founders’ Quote Daily

“The state governments have a full superintendence and control over the immense mass of local interests of their respective states,
which connect themselves with the feelings, the affections,the municipal institutions, and the internal arrangements of the whole population. They possess, too, the immediate administration of justice in all cases, civil and criminal, which concern the property, personal rights, and peaceful pursuits of their own citizens.”

— Joseph Story (Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833)
