Mr. Ward spoke at an event sponsored by Democratic state legislators from the east side of Seattle. He talked about the dangers of the devolution of power from the federal government to the states over certain matters, such as welfare, environmental protection and civil rights. He stressed that progressives must counter the arguments for new federalism by reminding people of the problems in the nation when states had too much power and that they must create new ways to solve the nation’s problems which will not be solved by devolution. He also took a few questions from the audience. close
