Con law student here. I have a question about the rational basis standard of review. According to my notes:
The rational basis test asks:
1.) Is there a real problem
2.) Is the (government) solution rationally or reasonably related to the problem
My question is: Is there any requirement that the solution must not be unduly burdensome? Is that a part of it?

Only thing you need for the rational basis test is whether the means are rationally related to a legitimate government objective. Extreme deference to the legislature (usually) and the rationality of the means can be completely hypothetical, conjectured by the Court. No requirement of anything being unduly burdensome.
