Post-Loper, Congress must rein in the bureaucracy

The Supreme Court has spoken, but Congress must act.

This is the most important takeaway from the court’s ruling in Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo. The justices ended the foolish practice of judicial deference to a federal agency’s “reasonable” interpretation of ambiguous laws known as “Chevron deference.”

The ruling will help block the vast federal bureaucracy from abusing its power, but agencies will continue to threaten Americans’ freedom and prosperity by violating a bigger constitutional principle. Agencies can still issue sweeping and costly regulations without congressional signoff. Congress must reclaim its legislative power and restore America’s system of checks and balances.
