What's The Point Of The Tenth Amendment?

By Brittany Antonacci June 15, 2020 0 comments

Hello Fellow Americans,

Today we’ll be continuing our in-depth series at a look into the constitution—primarily covering the Tenth Amendment. We’ll be giving a little background history as well as the purpose it currently holds. 

So, without further ado, let’s get started…

The Tenth Amendment states…

"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." 


This makes sure any power not specifically designated to the federal government is given to the state and its people. 

 

 

This basically divides the power the federal and state districts of government hold and operate. For example, the federal portion of the government has the ability to declare war, collect taxes, and maintain the army. The state has the power to set traffic laws, hold elections, and establish local laws. 

 

This amendment is very similar to the one previous as it has the power to limit federal involvement within the everyday life of citizens.

 

Some professionals in the field have assessed this portion of the constitution and believe this should be in conjunction with the ninth amendment, not following it or separate.

 

Basically, this amendment is to ensure the federal government does not attain too much power over the American people. Let us know if you have any additional questions on this amendment and we’ll be happy to answer them in the comments. 

 

See You Later Patriot!!!
