The recent congressional foray into the affairs of the Port of New York Authority has dramatized a growingly menacing attitude toward interstate compacts and agencies even while they have become increasingly indispensable arms of state government. In asking for a clarification of the nature of Congress' interest in the interstate compacts, Professor Leach urges a greater exercise of federal restraint. "Compromise and adjustment, not challenge and counterchallenge, are basic to a strong federal system."
