Good question.  Without knowing more,
I would expect that it is municipal law, 
because most of the garbage coming out of 
Congress these days is municipal law, 
under the guise of general law.

Remember, there are lots of "federal citizens"
inhabiting the 50 states of the Union, and
that "association" is not a Republic, but a
legislative democracy.  So, Congress claims
to have authority to legislative municipal
law for them, wherever they might live and work!

Remember, many activists have no clue about
the true significance of municipal law,
even if they have been activists for many

This insight is a well hidden key!

For background, read and refer others to
"The Two United States and the Law" in
the Supreme Law Library, by Howard Freeman.
This is a great, vernacular introduction
to this all important distinction.
