McCulloch v. Maryland Background: The United States had a federal bank. The state of Maryland had a vote to tax all people who did business outside a state bank. Maryland tried to tax the federal bank. Andrew McCulloch refused to pay the tax and the state of Maryland sued.
McCulloch v Maryland Decision: John C. Marshall made the decision on the case. He stated that the federal government did have the power to set up a national bank. Then he wrote that states did not have the power to tax the federal bank. He said that states should not have that power. So McCulloch won the case.
Who has the power?: I think that the National government gets more power in this case. I say this because it allows the state to not tax them so they are not loosing money. It takes away the states power because they can not tax the federal bank. The National government has more power over the states in this case
