The Constitution for the United States of America

Article 1
Section 8 - Paragraph 18

To make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into execution the foregoing powers, and all other powers vested by this constitution in the government of the United States, or in any department or officer thereof.

It is necessary that the Legislature be granted the power and the authority to carry out its assigned tasks. Just remember, the Legislature can only deal with Foreign Nations, the States, and Indian Nations, and can therefore only pass laws affecting its responsibilities in those areas.
