this question is an opinion question. the fact that the federal government can ever feel undermined my a state's decision means that the federal government is indeed not supreme and the supremacy clause should be defined unsupported. But alas that is not the case so my answer is that since the supremacy lies within the federal govt any decision that states make that opposes the federal govt does not undermine the federal, however, allows the states to use their reserved powers that given to them in the constitution in the tenth amendment.
