Federalism: The Division of
Power



✤   Federalism is a system of government in which a written constitution
    divides the powers of government on a territorial basis between a
    central, or national, government and several regional governments,
    usually called states or provinces.
National vs State Powers
Powers approved, or denied, of
the National Government

✤   Expressed, or enumerated, powers (spelled out; expressed)



✤   Implied powers (implied; reasonably suggested)



✤   Inherent Powers (government of a sovereign state; historically
    possessed)
The States


✤   Reserved Powers - powers that the Constitution does not grant to the
    National Government and does not, at the same time, deny to the
    States.



✤   Denied Powers
