Abstract

Under the Defense Reform Initiative, Congress requires the privatization of utility systems on military reservations using competitive bidding procedures. Addresses how states may or may not be able to regulate bidders that provide privatized utilities for the military in federal enclaves. Further, analyzes the governing federal statutes against the Federal Enclave Clause, Property Clause, and Supremacy Clause of the United States Constitution.
