Graves: SCOTUS Ruling Reiterates that Congress – Not Bureaucrats – Should Write Laws

U.S. Congressman Garret Graves (South Louisiana) issued the following statement today in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo, where it overturned the 1984 Chevron decision on federal agency authorities:

“The Supreme Court decision today could go down as one of the most impactful in modern history,” said Congressman Graves. “This helps to restore the role of Congress and the balance of powers. The court is exactly right in that laws should only be written by Congress – not through the unilateral actions of Republican and Democrat presidents and bureaucrats. Now, the onus is on Congress to move away from dysfunction and toward doing what is best for the American people, rather than focusing on the politics. We will see if our politicians are up to the task.”
