4 (2) IUSTITIA 50 (1977)


The purpose of this article is to examine whether the National Emergencies Act will accomplish its purpose of insuring that the exercise of national emergency authority by the Executive is responsible, appropriate, and timely. While the National Emergencies Act has drawn a certain amount of attention to the problem, it has, by no means, solved it. The Act exempts from its provisions eight statutes which the executive branch considers "vital" national emergency authority.' 9 The obvious paradox of these exceptions, which is one of the most important continuing problems in the area, is more easily understood after an examination of how the National Emergencies Act came to be law.
