The new push to move political issue activity from the federal to the state and local levels—a new New Federalism—has implicationsfor the ethical and political legitimacy of business political activity. While business political activity at the federal level may be both lesscostly and less risky than when action shifts to states or localities, at the state or local level it is likely to be more visible, and individual firms may be perceived to have more power. Increased corporate power raises questions about the legitimacy of firm involvement in the political process at the state and local levels. The issue of legitimacy is viewed in the context of the literature on political subcultures being used to study state economic development
