The U.S. Supreme Court went out with a roar last June, issuing a series of major decisions including one on the Affordable Care Act and Arizona’s SB 1070 immigration law. The court returned from their summer break on Monday, and as many court watchers are predicting, this may be another big year for the court. To discuss the upcoming cases that will impact states, NCSL’s Jon Kuhl sat down with the executive director of the State and Local Legal Center, Lisa Soronen.
