9. Citizens have rights that aren't listed within the Constitution.

10. Licensing, certification, and local issues will be delegated to the state governments.

The idea is to delegate some power away from the federal government. The tenth amendment delegates certain powers to the state governments. The ninth amendment delegates certain, broad powers to each individual citizen.
