Nelson on the Emergency Declaration

Senator Lamar Alexander entered an op-ed by NYU Law’s William E. Nelson, entitled, Trump vs. Congress: The emergency declaration should not be resolved in court, into the Congressional Record yesterday.  Senator Alexander called Professor Nelson as“one of America's foremost scholars of legal history” and reported that the op-ed “explained why it is so important that the President and the Congress should not, in Professor Nelson's words, ‘invert the entire constitutional order where Congress appropriates and the President spends.’”  Cong. Rec., S1613-14  (March 4 2019).  H/t: RAE
