The State of Confusion BUS/415 Yolanda K. Ramon February 22, 2012 University of Phoenix Ms. Dottie May The State of Confusion The State of Confusion can be located where trucks travel frequently.

In this case, Confusion has put a burden on trucks and trailers which pass through Confusion for the interstate destination. In the end the Dormant Commerce Clause proviso would most likely be used in the court to make the decision on the statue. In the past the Supreme Court decided that the Gibbons versus Ogden would be addressed. The decision was stated that the state cannot act to commerce decisions without the permission of Congress (Farlex, 2010). With the results from the Gibbons versus Ogden case, Ms. Tanya Trucker would likely prevail against the suit that the State of Confusion had tried to enforce of the B-type hitch. The statue will be overturned because it places an unfair burden to truckers that have other hitches. Truckers would have broken a law in order for them to possess a special hitch that could only be installed in that state. REFERENCES Farlex. (2010). Gibbons v. Ogden.
