Supreme Court Overturns Chevron Deference

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) overruled the Chevron Deference Doctrine—coined after the 1984 Chevron vs. Natural Resources Defense Council Supreme Court Case. For years, this doctrine has allowed unelected officials to run roughshod over Congress and implement harmful regulations.

Essentially, Chevron Deference allows executive branch agencies to take liberties and work off their interpretations of directives from Congress. This has spiraled out of control and resulted in a regulatory state where federal agencies have seized power and have overreached in many areas to the detriment of our businesses and national security. 

The Supreme Court ruling is a huge win for American energy producers in the Permian Basin, small businesses, and the American people.
