3 Interstate Relations Interstate Compacts – agreements among states and with foreign states. Though it’s not always required, most states submit compacts to Congress for approval More than 200 compacts exist today All 50 states have entered into 2 compacts Compact for the Supervision of Parolees and Probationers Compact on Juveniles Full Faith and Credit Clause “Full faith and credit shall be given in each state to the public Acts, Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other state” Public acts - laws Records - documents like birth certificates, marriage licenses, property deeds Judicial proceedings - outcome of court actions

4 Exceptions Applies only to civil, not criminal matters.
One state cannot enforce another state’s criminal law. Full faith and credit need not be given to certain divorces granted by one state to residents of another state Williams v. North Carolina 1945 case where a man and a woman traveled to Nevada where each wished to obtain a divorce so they could marry each other. They lived in Las Vegas for 6 weeks, the minimum period of state residence required by Nevada’s divorce law. They received their divorces, were married, and then returned to NC. NC authorities refused to recognize the divorces in NV and brought the couple to trial where a jury convicted them of bigamous cohabitation. On appeal, the court upheld the NC ruling because the couple had not established true – good faith – residence in Nevada. To become a legal resident of a state one must live there permanently, or at least indefinitely. What could this couple have done to establish the validity of the divorces they got in Nevada?

5 Extradition, Privileges, and Immunities
Extradition – the legal process by which a fugitive from justice in one state is returned to that state. Privileges and Immunities Clause – “The Citizens of each State shall be entitled to all Privileges and Immunities of citizens in the several states” No state can draw unreasonable distinctions between its own residents and people who live in other states.

6 Review What agreements does the Constitution prohibit the States from making? What is the purpose of extradition? Give two examples of actions protected under the Privileges and Immunities Clause. What actions are not protected by the Privileges and Immunities Clause? What might happen if each state were not required to give full faith and credit to the public acts, records, and judicial proceedings in other states? Provide at least two examples to support your conclusion.
