Necessary and proper clause

For your Week 5 Paper you will be required to conduct research on the following topic:

Often referred as the “necessary and proper” clause, Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution states that Congress has the power “to make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for the carrying into execution the foregoing powers.”
What does this mean? And…What are the consequences of the ruling in 1790 by Chief Justice Marshall that still affects us to this day. (In other words, give me one example of some law today that either Congress or the President has used, justifying its necessity because of this clause.)

HIS 121 Weekly Paper Instructions

The Weekly Paper is to be a minimum of 3 complete pages in length. Going over the minimum page length requirement is acceptable; however, I am not looking for a 6+ page Weekly Paper! Also, you must demonstrate knowledge of how to conduct research. This means you are required to find and use a minimum of 3 scholarly sources (e.g. GMC Textbook, GMC Library, and Google Scholar).

All papers are to have an APA title page and an APA reference page. The APA title page and APA reference page do NOT count towards the minimum page requirement! Your body of work needs to be a minimum of 3 complete pages! Also, you do not need to put your footnotes at the bottom of each page throughout the body of the paper. Instead, you may do the following for this paper:

The War of 1812 was started by America. (Kucsan, 2009) or (the authors last name). Now if you are using more than one article by the same author then you need to put in the title of the articlesuch as (Kucsan, 2009, Consequences of the War of 1812). If you are using 2 different works with authors of the same last name then do the following; (Kucsan, P, 2009) Just put in the first initial.
