The US Constitution assigns authority to the federal (national) government as a whole and to each of the branches of government. Those given to the federal government, in general, are referred to as express(ed) powers.

Power is shared in a federal government. According to the US Constitution, certain authority is delegated to various parts of the federal government, other authority is reservedto the states or the people (see Tenth Amendment).

  • Express(ed) Powers: Powers allowed to the federal government.
  • Denied Powers: Powers explicitly denied to the federal government.
  • Enumerated or Delegated Powers: Powers given to a branch of government.
  • Implied or Inherent Powers: Unwritten powers logically related to an enumerated or delegated power. Also called unenumerated powers.
  • Reserved Powers: Powers allowed to the states or the people.
  • Concurrent or Shared Powers: Powers shared by the state and national government in a federal system.
