Podcast: The U.S. Constitution and COVID-19
As lockdown measures begin to ease up, we thought we would explore the constitutional questions they raised. Joining me in this conversation is my co-host Michael Otteson, and KU Law Professor Richard Levy.
In this episode, we take a look at what sort of textual, institutional, and political restrictions there are in limiting just what our federal, state, and local governments are able to in combating the current pandemic. And at one point, our conversation takes a short diversion into the misuse of power our government has overseen during national emergencies.
