Governors can neither ignore nor write laws

The Constitution allows governors to take on special emergency powers during a crisis. But those powers are created and granted by legislators, are subject to limits, and cannot continue indefinitely. Governors can’t simply extend and expand the boundaries of their powers. Not even during a pandemic.
