Due to inclement weather, the League panel discussion "Powers of the Presidency" scheduled for Wednesday, January 9, has been rescheduled for Tuesday January 22 at the Kellogg-Hubbard Library from 7-8:30 p.m.
Executive Power. Executive Expansion. Executive Overreach. Do we need to be concerned about concentrating too much power in the Presidency? Should we be worried about the use of executive orders to get around Congress? What are the limits to presidential authority? Checks and balances?
On Tuesday January 22, (new date due to rescheduling), a panel of scholars will delve deep into the U.S. Constitution to answer these and other questions as they deliberate Powers of the Presidency, a subject of much discussion since the election.
