The last two SCOTUS decisions came down yesterday.
The one we were watching has been pretty low profile, and that was West Virginia v. EPA on the overreach of unelected bureaucrats in government agencies making industry wide rules/regulations.
Well, SCOTUS gave a win to West Virginia!!!
While some commentators view this decision narrowly as a determination of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ability to promulgate regulations to address climate change, in practice, it sets a precedent that will limit the ability of all executive agencies to make regulations that shift entire industries without specific congressional authority to do so.
According to legal expert Jonathan Turley, “it will be much more difficult for President Biden to order sweeping environmental changes without congressional approval” in the wake of this decision.
