Should the Chevron Doctrine Be Abandoned or Modified?

Co-hosted by

For more than three decades, the Supreme Court’s Chevron decision has ruled the subject of administrative law. Under the Chevron Doctrine, federal administrative agencies have the authority to interpret acts of Congress, as well as to fill in any “blanks” that appear in its text, unless Congress has answered the specific question raised by a particular dispute. The effect of Chevron has been to delegate an enormous amount of lawmaking to unelected officials – the opposite of what the Framers intended. Join us as we address the problems created by the Chevron Doctrine and offer some solutions to it.
