Federalism * Enumerated Powers * Separation of Powers

Module 6 – Tenth Amendment Project

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” – United States Constitution, Article X of Amendment

 

Discussion

What powers are “delegated to the United States by the Constitution?”
 
What does the construction of the United States Constitution tell us about the powers “reserved” to the states or to the people?
 
Why is an understanding of the Constitution’s construction crucial today?
 
These questions and more will be answered by the Constitution Institute. When Americans truly understand the Tenth Amendment in light of constitutional construction, they will learn the true limits of federal authority.
