T/F Tuesday Answer: FALSE! Emergency does not create power. Emergency does not increase granted power or remove or diminish the restrictions placed upon power granted or reserved. The Constitution was adopted in a period of grave emergency. Its grants of power to the Federal Government and its limitations of the power of the States were determined in the light of emergency, and they are not altered by emergency.
