Congressional Powers

HW due Thursday: Read 345-357 and take the reading quiz.

Most of the powers of Congress are found in Article 1, Section 8. Today we will classify the various powers of Congress and review/define several terms associated with Congressional powers.

  • enumerated powers
  • implied powers
  • necessary and proper clause (elastic clause)
CLASSIFY: Create a 4 box grid (or other organizational chart) and classify the powers of Congress according to the following categories:
  • economic
  • military
  • other (ex. weights & measures)
  • non-legislative (ex. impeachment)
You should have a minimum of 3-4 items for each category.
