A mandate is when the federal government orders a state to get something done. For example, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the federal government made it necessary for all public buildings to have accommodations for the disabled and the states must comply.
I've never heard of the term non-state mandated but I assume it means the federal government hasn't mandated any state to do anything yet. The bill hasn't had much activity recently according to baklash's picture so don't get all worked up. It seems to be still under vote.
AP NSL ftw. I actually understand all this government talk now.
