The Court has never said that Congress has unlimited authority to attach conditions to federal funding. Some federalism-based limits presumably remain, even after South Dakota v. Dole. Might there be some question whether aid to education justifies limits on non-educational uses of property? What if Justice O'Connor's dissent in Dole now represents the majority view?

I know some argue that conservatives should have voted
against this bill based upon federalism concerns. But
it seems to me that once we decide the feds have a
role in *funding* local education, we have lost our
virginity on the federalism point. The restrictions
are attached to the money and any public school that
wishes to preserve its independence from federal
control has a clear right of exit by refusing the
funds and the strings attached to the funds.
Cheers, Rick Duncan
