Applicability of the National Emergencies Act to Statutes That Do Not Expressly Require the President to Declare a National Emergency

Headnotes: 

The National Emergency Act’s coverage is not limited to statutes that expressly require the President to declare a national emergency, but rather extends to any statute “conferring powers and authorities to be exercised during a national emergency,” unless Congress has exempted such a statute from the Act.
