Description

Such interpretation of laws by the Supreme Court has not been limited to the federal judiciary. Both the legislative and executive branches have interpreted the Constitution. The U.S. Constitution’s Commerce Clause (Article I, Section 8) represents one of Congress’s most important sources of legislative powers. Congress has employed the commerce clause to enact thousands of pieces of legislation.

Give one example of an act or law Congress has passed through the Commerce Clause (up to 5pts) and fully explain why Congress had to write the law (up to 5pts.) 3 pts only will be given if you do not fully explain the reason Congress had to take action.
