  1. Delegated Powers are powers given only to the federal government. Reserved Powers are powers reserved for state governments. and concurrent powers are powers shared between the state and federal governments. Implied powers are powers that congress are not specifically listed in the constitution and expressed powers are powers of congress that are specified.

The seniority system describes the practice of granting privileges to members of Congress who have served the longest. Those privileges range from choice of offices to choice of committee assignments, for example. Members with a longer term of service on a committee are assumed to be "senior" and have more power in the committee. Seniority is usually, but not always, considered when each party awards committee chairmanships, the most powerful position on a committee.
