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 the congress or the president has used , justifying its necessity because of this clause.)

Papers are to be 2 pages in length, double spaced. There is no need for a title page! Your paper MUST include a reference page. The reference page should be on a page all by itself and not included at the end of the body of your work. If your paper runs a little long, that is OK, but I am not looking for 5 or 6 page reports. Be precise but make sure you are answering the question. Spelling and grammar count.
