U.S. Supreme Court

Harris v. Rosario, 446 U.S. 651 (1980)

Harris v. Rosario

No. 79-1294

Decided May 27, 1980

446 U.S. 651

Syllabus

Held: The lower level of reimbursement provided to Puerto Rico under the Aid to Families with Dependent Children program does not violate the Fifth Amendment's equal protection guarantee. Congress, pursuant to its authority under the Territory Clause of the Constitution to make all needful rules and regulations respecting Territories, may treat Puerto Rico differently from States so long as there is a rational basis for its actions, as here. Cf. Califano v. Torres, 435 U. S. 1.

Reversed.
