Best Answer

The name of the Necessary and Proper Clause is "the Necessary and Proper Clause," but in the Constitution it's simply labeled Article I, Section 8 (Clause 18). It is the 18th Clause, but you have to count the clauses to find it because the enumerated powers aren't numbered.

This is also often referred to as the "Elastic Clause" because it can be stretched to enable Congress to pass or enforce legislation that may seem (or actually be) beyond its constitutional reach.

Necessary and Proper Clause

"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."
