A state of national crisis; a situation demanding immediate and extraordinary national or federal action

Black’s Law Dictionary

I think of all the damnable heresies that have ever been suggested in connection with the Constitution, the doctrine of emergency is the worst
It means that when Congress declares an emergency, there is no Constitutionfor when this bill becomes a law, … there is no longer any workable Constitution to keep the Congress within the limits of its Constitutional powers” – Spoken by Congressman Beck in 1933 prior to the passage of the Farm Bill
