One Way the State Legislature Binds the State and Localities to the Feds

The last sentence of this bill, excluding the date of effect statement, shows how the States incorporate federal law, binding State and local officials to it, per State code.

(g) The policy shall comply with state and federal laws regarding the placements of students.

Bolded for emphasis.

Why add the words “federal law” to a State bill, if you want to free yourself from the federal government?  There must be some money involved.  That usually makes principles dissolve quickly.
