"The elastic clause" and the implied powers of Congress


This portion of the Constitution is known as the elastic clause. This clause allows for Congress to take on some powers not specifically given to them in the Constitution in extreme cases.



The Elastic Clause allows Congress to stretch its powers. The clause is found in Article I, Section 8, Clause 18 of the US Constitution.


Taken Exactly From my History Textbook on the Legislative Branch."Most of the expressed powers on congress are itemized in Article 1, Section 8. These powers are also called enumerated powers because they are numbered 1-18. Five enumerated powers deal with economic legislation-- the power to levy taxes, to borrow money, to regulate commerce, to coin money, and to punish counterfeiting."


Article I, Section 8, Clause 18 of the US Constitution is often called the "Elastic Clause". It allows Congress to make laws that are considered "reasonable and necessary".


The "elastic clause" in Article I, section 8, clause 18, is also called the "necessary and proper clause." This means that powers deemed necessary to perform its duties are also powers of Congress. --- "The Congress shall have Power ... To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof."


True Article 1, Section 8, Clause 18, which gives Congress the power to make all laws "necessary and proper" to carry out their other powers, is the Constitutional source for what type of powers?


because it lets Congress stretch its powers to meet situations the founders could never have anticipated.


U.S. Art. I, Sec. 8, Cl. 18, empowering congress to make all laws which shall be "necessary and proper" for carrying out to execution the enumerated powers of Congress.


Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution gives the federal government 18 "enumerated powers" of the Congress. The 9th and 10th Amendments restrict the congress to ONLY those functions, and reserve all other powers to the states or to the People.


Article I, Section 8, Clause 18 - the so-called "elastic clause" or "necessary and proper clause."


Article I, Section 8, Clause 18 is the key clause in the Constitution that gives implied powers to Congress. It is often referred to as the elastic clause and is quite controversial.


U.S. Art. I, Sec. 8, Cl. 18, empowering congress to make all laws which shall be "necessary and proper" for carrying out to execution the enumerated powers of Congress.


Article 1 section 8, has a short set of powers then goes on to list 18 more in list style. Not including any amendments


Yes. Article I, Section 8 lists "To establish Post Offices and post Roads;" as one of the 18 "enumerated powers" of the Congress.


So-called implied powers come from the "necessary and proper" clause of Article 1 of the Constitution, Section 8, which vests certain legislative powers within the federal government. Clause 18 of that section then authorizes Congress to ". . . make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into execution the foregoing powers, and all other powers vested by this Constitution in the government of the United States or in any Department or officer thereof."


Group 18, in the periodic table, is called the noble gases.


The answer is in the question. The Necessary and Proper Clause is Article I, Section 8, Clause 18. The exact wording is: The Congress shall have Power ... To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.


So-called implied powers come from the "necessary and proper" clause of the Constitution. Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution vests certain legislative powers within the federal government. Clause 18 of that section then authorizes Congress to ". . . make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into execution the foregoing powers, and all other powers vested by this Constitution in the government of the United States or in any Department or officer thereof." An example is when the Congress created the Bank of the United States. The Constitution does not give Congress the power to create a bank, but it does give Congress the power to coin money, to impose and collect taxes, to borrow money, to pay for an army, etc. A national bank would aid in doing these things, so Congress has the implied power to create a bank, even though that power is not specifically in the Constitution.
