PRESS RELEASE: Governing for Impact Statement on Supreme Court Decision to Overturn Chevron

Regulatory policy group highlights the implications and consequences of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Chevron v. NRDC

WASHINGTON, DC Governing for Impact Executive Director Rachael Klarman released the following statement:

“The Supreme Court’s decision is the latest in a line of extreme decisions that puts the interests of corporate law breakers, polluters, and anti-labor activists over the interests of the American people. However, the immediate impact of today’s decision may be limited. The Supreme Court has not relied on Chevron in a number of years. As a result, the Court has already dramatically intruded into the policy making process an area once thought to properly belong under the purview of the two democratically elected branches of the federal government and courts around the country have followed their lead, increasingly eschewing Chevron deference. The Biden Administration has also smartly been preparing for Chevron’s formal demise over the last four years and has not relied on the doctrine to defend its rules.

As a result, Loper Bright’s impact will depend on how we respond. Rather than self-limiting, advocates must continue to urge federal agencies to use every legal authority at their disposal to enact strong rules that protect consumers, workers, and the public.”
