Now I haven’t been in a Civics class in quite some time so I may be a bit fuzzy, but it is my understanding that any rulings not set forth directly by the Constitution were to be decided by the States individually. I see this as Congress trying to make sure that that is exactly what happens in these cases.

I don’t see it that way. I see this as Congress trying to impose its will on the country with no checks and balances. Congress isn’t saying that states should be allowed to decide for themselves. Congress is saying that it will pass laws and nobody is allowed to question the Constitutionality of those laws.
