Supreme Court to Congress:  We Did Our Job, Now Do Yours

WASHINGTON, DC (6/28/24) – Today, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a 6-3 opinion in Loper Bright Enterprises, et al. v. Raimondo overturning the 1984 decision in Chevron v. Natural Resources Defense Council (“Chevron deference”), which directed courts to defer to regulatory agencies’ interpretations of ambiguous statutes. This action reaffirms the Constitutional separation of powers, restores stability and certainty to the regulatory process, and ensures that Congress – rather than unelected federal bureaucrats – sets policy that impacts business and the lives of all Americans.

AEA President Thomas Pyle issued the following statement:

For too long, Congress, with the help of the judiciary, has abdicated its responsibilities to unelected government agents, resulting in four decades of administrative overreach that has driven up the cost of doing business in America. Today’s ruling put Congress on notice that they need to be more accountable to the people that they have been elected to serve.

We commend the Supreme Court for reaffirming the importance of the separation of powers and opposing excessive executive branch regulation. This outcome is a win for small business and American families that are struggling in President Biden’s economy.”
