National Emergency Powers
 

CRS Report for Congress: National Emergency Powers-The President of the United States has available certain powers that may be exercised in the event that the Nation is threatened by crisis, exigency emergency circumstances (other than natural disasters, war, or near-war situations). Such powers may be stated explicitly or implied by the Constitution, assumed by the Chief Executive to be constitutionally permissible, or inferred from or specified by statute. Through legislation, Congress has made a great many delegations of authority in this regard over the past 200 years. This "Congressional Research Service Report" shows how these emergency powers have been used to nullify provisions and protections of the U.S. Constitution.
