1. The U.S. Supreme Court recognized the powers of the national government in McCulloch v. Maryland and Gibbons v. Ogden , but economic regulation would remain limited since most commerce before the 20 th century took place within states. o In McCulloch v Maryland, the Supreme Court ruled that Congress had implied powers based on the “necessary and proper” clause of the Constitution. This case involved the question of whether Congress had the power to charter a national bank since such an explicit grant of power was nowhere to be found in Article I, section 8. o Marbury v Madison Being unable to assume the appointed offices without the commission documents, Marbury and three others petitioned the Court to force Madison to deliver the commission to Marbury. The Supreme Court denied Marbury's petition, holding that the statute upon which he based his claim was unconstitutional. the case is monumentally significant because it was the first time that the Supreme Court declared an act of Congress to be unconstitutional.
