Panel 1: Executive Powers During a Global Crisis (10:00 – 11:30 AM PST)

The executive branch of the federal government has been the subject of intense scrutiny during the coronavirus pandemic. What in the US Constitution allows the executive branch to accomplish (or not accomplish) what it did? What did it choose to prioritize on both a domestic and international scale, and why? What lasting effects did these decisions have on the American people?
