7. Unfunded Mandates

Higher levels of government should not be required to pay for requirements they place on lower levels of government. Orders from higher levels of government should be honored by the lower levels just because they come from higher levels of government. If lower levels of government feel that they should not be bound by any mandate from a higher level of government, they should file a lawsuit and argue their case in court. Every level of government has the power to raise taxes in order to fund whatever compliance was mandated by the higher level of government.
