Supreme Court Potentially Poised To Curtail Administrative Agency Power

 January 16, 2024

An upcoming decision from the U.S. Supreme Court could change everything.

Soon, they will meet to hear arguments on the continued viability of the so-called Chevron doctrine, a pattern of deference to administrative agencies that liberals have been using to get their way for too long.

According to the court, the sole topics of discussion will be “Whether the Court should overrule Chevron or at least clarify that statutory silence concerning controversial powers expressly but narrowly granted elsewhere in the statute does not constitute an ambiguity requiring deference to the agency.”

Now, everything could be changing for the better.

Four decades after being put into place, the Chevron doctrine, as America knows it, could finally cease to exist.

Some conservatives have said for a long time that the Chevron deference allows the federal government too much freedom without sufficient accountability, letting unelected bureaucrats create regulatory rules whenever statutory language is vague or ambiguous.

While we do not know what the Supreme Court will decide or what we can expect the justices' decision, it is crazy to think that we might be seeing the end of an era and the beginning of a new and improved way of interpreting the law.

Do you think we should get rid of the Chevron doctrine?
