Top Definition
Powers delegated to the National Government because it is the government of a sovereign state within the world community.
The concept of inherent powers depends on a distinction between powers that are explicitly spelled out in the Constitution or in statutes, and those that a government, or an individual officer of government, possesses implicitly, whether owing to the nature of sovereignty or to a permissive interpretation of the language of the Constitution.
