Perspectives on Executive Power: Czars, Libya, and Recent Developments - Event Audio/Video

This panel will address the role of Executive branch officials in making high-level policy decisions, and their relationship to Congress. This is particularly relevant in the context of two recent debates: can the President ignore congressional attempts to strip funding from high-level officials who are not confirmed by the Senate? Is the Obama administration’s use of “czars” constitutional? Moreover, what is the power of the Executive branch to start a war without any authorization from Congress? The Federalist Society's Student Division presented this panel at the 2012 Annual Student Symposium on March 3, 2012.
