 Comparative Federalism   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
Federalism has proven remarkably enduring as an organizing principle for governments in countries that seek to maintain elements of both unity and diversity in their populaces and political institutions.
A unique characteristic of the Canadian policy is the existence of a large francophone minority with the federation; this is concentrated primarily in one constituent unit of the federation, the province of Quebec, where it forms the majority.
Federalism, however, was essentially imposed by a small white oligarchy upon an unwilling majority of native Africans, and served to accelerate the spread of militant African nationalism.

However, the many agencies of the Federal government perform a wide range of functions and services vital to our national and homeland security, economic stability, and public health and safety; functions such as public health advisories, social entitlements, and weather forecasting, which the private sector can’t or won’t perform.
Thus, many departments and agencies in the Federal government contribute to critical infrastructure assurance because they are responsible and accountable for maintaining appropriate levels of systems security, emergency preparedness, and continuity of government operations.
Once such critical assets and associated dependencies are identified, Federal departments and agencies must assess their vulnerability to physical or cyber interruptions and develop and implement plans to manage risk.

Federal systems are also often juxtaposed with very diverse modes of government or approaches to management.
As a result, neither the federal government nor the governments of the various constituent regions are constitutionally subordinate to one another.
One approach consists of increasing the federal government’s authority in regions where the state’s capacity to exercise legislative authority is less advanced or is temporarily undermined.

Once these assets and dependencies are identified, further steps will be necessary, such as conducting or updating vulnerability assessments, managing identified vulnerabilities, and ensuring that these assets are appropriately considered in planning for the continuity of essential agency operations.
Once critical assets and their associated dependencies are identified, the agencies are to assess their vulnerability to physical or cyber attack and, if vulnerabilities are found, to develop and implement plans to manage the risks posed by potential attacks to the performance of essential functions and services.
Although federal continuity-of-operations guidance does not specify how often plans should be updated, plans over 2 years old predate the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, and for Energy and EPA, predate the identification of their tentative critical assets.

Although alcoholism and other drug dependencies are recognized as diseases that cause disability, and although it has been demonstrated that intervention through employee assistance programs in the workplace is a cost-effective means to bring recovery, recent events have threatened the availability of this approach to alcoholic and addicted employees.
Babbitt, ruled that Federal agencies are not required to offer an employee a "firm choice" between treatment for alcoholism and discharge, but may terminate the employee, even when the employment deficiency in question is known to be addiction-related.
Employees whose job performance is impaired by alcoholism and/or other drug dependencies should have the same protection under the law as employees disabled by other diseases and be offered the opportunity for rehabilitation.

 Public Policy of ASAM: Parity in Benefit Coverage   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
As America continues to confront unprecedented problems from the wide spread prevalence of alcoholism and other drug dependencies and the annual direct and indirect costs these problems create, access to treatment for addictive diseases is becoming increasingly important.
Many persons in need of such treatment are covered for their overall health care by a variety of public and private third-party payment plans that severely restrict or exclude addiction treatment services, thereby denying patients access to quality care.
Specifically, the federal government prohibits the use by health plans of annual and lifetime financial caps which are different from mental illness and other physical illnesses.
