Define, and give examples of the three powers delegated to the national government. Page 96. Three powers delegated to the national government are expressed powers, implied powers, and inherent powers. Expressed powers are those powers delegated to the National Government. It includes the power to lay and collect taxes. Implied powers are not entirely expressed in the Constitution, but implied by the expressed powers. An example would be prohibiting racial discrimination in public areas such as restaurants, theaters, and hotels. Inherent Powers are the powers that belong to the National Government because it is the national government of a sovereign state in the world community. An example of inherent powers would be the power to regulate immigration.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
