Presumption Against Preemption


A canon of construction requiring a court to assume that traditional state powers are not preempted by federal statute when interpreting an ambiguous preemption clause. This presumption is most common in situations where states generally govern, such as regulating health and safety or in tort cases with traditional state-law remedies.
