Transcript of The 10th Amendment

What is the 10th amendment?
10th Amendment: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people
State’s governments rights
Includes the right to tax, to police, wage and hour laws (minimum wage) disclosure of personal information in recordkeeping systems, and marriage laws.


Historical Development
The 10th Amendment gives the state government the rights the federal government doesn’t have.
Introduced by James Maddison on September 5, 1789
Voted for by 9 out of 12 states on December 15 1791
In 1931 in a Supreme Court case, the justices said that the Tenth Amendment did not really add anything new to the United States Constitution and that it sometimes let states avoid federal regulations, but nothing changed.

Impact on the United States Today
Part of the 10th Amendment is that the states have the right to control marriage laws, and a big issue today is gay marriage.
In North Carolina gay marriage isn’t recognized.
There were many court cases in which states who opposed gay marriage where challenged by many different organizations (including the Supreme Court) to allow gay marriage. The main argument for those states opposed to gay marriage is that it is the state's right and not the federal/ supreme courts right to interfere with the rights given to the states in the 10th amendment. Those who are pro-gay marriage wanted their marriage to be recognized by the states on their marriage documents for taxes and divorces.

Usefulness and Application
Prevents the federal government from gaining too much power over the states.
States powers to tax and set the minimum wage.
Why it is important for the states to set their own minimum wage: if Pennsylvania has a better economy than New York and the federal government sets the minimum wage to 10 dollars an hour, then the businesses who pay by the hour will go out of business because they cannot afford to pay the minimum wage.

Pros and Cons of the 10th Amendment

The reason for the bill of rights was to gain the anti-federalist vote on the constitution.
A lot of federalists thought that the bill of rights was unnecessary and only used it as a way to pass the constitution.
States have more power.
Limits the federal government’s power.
The states can control certain taxes so the federal government can’t over tax them.
