Hooked on Change: How a Fishing Dispute Could Limit Federal Power

Episode #61

Early this week, the Supreme Court announced that it will hear a case aimed squarely at killing off the Chevron deference — the nearly-four-decade-old legal tool that gives federal agencies wide-ranging power to defend environmental rules in court.

But how did that case come about, and what could overruling the Chevron deference mean for government agencies, businesses, and us as citizens?

In this episode, Dylan breaks down Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo (which explicitly asks whether the Supreme Court should overrule Chevron), the making of the Chevron deference, and where the Supreme Court’s ability to declare laws constitutional actually comes from.
