Is it constitutional?

Posted by Rob Longenecker on November 1st, 2007

GOVERNMENT

In each new Congress since 1995, Rep. John Shadegg (R-AZ) has introduced the Enumerated Powers Act (HR 1359).

Simply put, if enacted, the Enumerated Powers Act would require Congress to specify the basis of authority in the U.S. Constitution for the enactment of laws and other congressional actions. No specific authority – no law.

The 10th Amendment to the Constitution says: ‘The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved for the States respectively, or to the people.’

Congressional power actually is limited by the Constitution but no one’s been holding them to account. Rep. Shadegg’s bill would change that.

Somebody really is “looking out for you” on this one. Support him, if you can.
