National A system of government in which a written constitution divides the powers of government on a territorial basis between a central, or national, government and several regional governments, usually called states or provinces. Our national government is a government of delegated powers, meaning that it only has powers granted to it by the Constitution. State The 10th Amendment gives States reserved powers, or powers that are not granted to the National government or denied to the States. Concurrent Powers Most can be found in Article I, Section 8.

The power to declare war
The power to fix weights and measures Other powers are given to the President in Article II
