Powers not delegated to the U. S. by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the People


Returning Power Back to the People – HUMAN EVENTS:

“On Thursday a group of House conservatives from the Republican Study Committee (RSC) announced the launch of the 10th Amendment Task Force — a project of the RSC — designed as a means for legislators to change tactics on downsizing the leviathan federal government.

With an eye toward November elections and the increasing likelihood of Republicans making great gains if not taking back Congress outright, the RSC is positioning an avenue by which conservative legislators can begin to reverse the unprecedented and unconstitutional power grabs inflicted on the states by an out-of-control Congress.

The 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is simple: “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.””

The 10 original members of the task force: Rep. Rob Bishop (R-Utah), Rep. John Culberson (R-Texas), Rep. Scott Garrett (R-N.J.), Rep. Cynthia Lummis (R-Wy.), Rep. Michael Conaway (R-Texas), Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-Texas), Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Co.) and Rep. Tom McClintock (R-Calif.).
