Hello! I was wondering if somebody could help with this question...
- During the early eighteenth century the colonial assemblies had gained what two important powers, what were they?



According to Encarta Encyclopedia,

"In reality, the governors had to share their power with the American assemblies. The colonial legislatures copied some of the methods used by English politicians to boost Parliament's authority such as insisting on controlling taxes and on being consulted on appointments to public office."
