Abstract:     
This paper and an accompanying online compendium attempt, for the first time since the 1970s, to reach a reasonably complete assessment of the number of national emergencies now in effect in the United States and the powers these emergencies confer on the Executive Branch. The paper also proposes specific statutory reforms to rein in the unchecked growth of these emergencies, and political reforms to subject the vast executive powers granted by the U.S. emergency law regime to the democratic process.
