10 U.S.C. § 527 : US Code - Section 527: Authority to suspend sections 523, 525, and 526

      In time of war, or of national emergency declared by Congress or
    the President after November 30, 1980, the President may suspend
    the operation of any provision of section 523, 525, or 526 of this
    title. So long as such war or national emergency continues, any
    such suspension may be extended by the President. Any such
    suspension 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 the termination of the emergency.
