(a)In time of war, or of national emergency declared by Congress or the President, the President may suspend the operation of any provision of section
12005 of this title. So long as any such war or national emergency continues, any such suspension may be extended by the President.
(b)Any suspension under subsection (a) shall, if not sooner ended, end on the last day of the two-year period beginning on the date on which the suspension (or the last extension thereof) takes effect or on the last day of the one-year period beginning on the date of the termination of the war or national emergency, whichever occurs first. With respect to the end of any such suspension, the preceding sentence supersedes the provisions of title II of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1621, 1622) which provide that powers or authorities exercised by reason of a national emergency shall cease to be exercised after the date of termination of the emergency.
The National Emergencies Act, referred to in subsec. (b), is Pub. L. 94–412, Sept. 14, 1976, 90 Stat. 1255, as amended. Title II of the Act is classified generally to subchapter II (§ 1621 et seq.) of chapter 34 of Title
50, War and National Defense. For complete classification of this Act to the Code, see Short Title note set out under section
1601 of Title
50 and Tables.
