"Home rule" is the notion that the government closest to the people should be relatively free to serve local citizens without excessive interference from state or federal bureaucracies.
Examples of "home rule" being undermined by State or Federal Governments:
- Florida lawmakers tried to push for a bill telling city commissioners how to conduct meetings, how long speakers should speak and how to even record minutes. Given all the problems with State politics, do we really need Tallahassee lawmakers telling local government how to conduct a meeting?
