Senate Report 93-549
was a document issued by the "Special Committee on the Termination of the National Emergency" of the 93rd Congress
(Hence the "93" in the name). Its purpose was to discuss and address the 40 year long state of emergency
that had been in effect in the United States
since 1933. During the continued state of emergency, Congress voted to transfer powers from Congress to the President. The debate to end long-running states of National Emergency was ended in 1976 with the National Emergencies Act
(50 U.S.C. 1601-1651), which limits any such declared emergencies to two years.
The report primarily consists of the history of the national state of emergency and examples of Congressional acts that transferred powers to the President. The report does not draw a conclusion. It reports that the committee requires more time because of the time required to hand-check all previous Congressional texts.
This report has been used in opposition to the war on terror
under George W. Bush's presidency. Often, it is portrayed as a current report written by the current sitting Congress. It is frequently mentioned by conspiracy theories
