Adding a Bill of Rights

The Bill of Rights

First eight amendments dealt with individual civil liberties.

Ninth Amendment stated that listing certain rights given to the people did not mean that other rights did not exist as well.

The final amendment addressed the actions that states could do.

Tenth Amendment defined two kinds of government powers.

Delegated powers: powers that the Constitution gives to each branch of the national government

Reserved powers: powers that the Constitution does not specifically give to the federal government or deny to the states

Reserved powers belong to the states or to the people.
