Ranking Member Cassidy Urges Federal Agencies to Comply with SCOTUS Overturning of Chevron Deference

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA), ranking member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee, is requesting information from federal agencies under the HELP Committee’s jurisdiction on how they will comply with the Supreme Court’s overturning of the Chevron deference and how they plan to implement laws as Congress intended. He also demanded the agencies comply with all Committee oversight, to ensure agencies are held accountable to operate within the bounds of the authorities that Congress has given them and properly use American taxpayers’ dollars.  

“For too long, Chevron deference allowed unelected bureaucrats, insulated from political accountability, to exercise power that exceeds their authority. Such unfettered power is a perversion of the Constitution,” said Dr. Cassidy. “The Supreme Court’s decision helps return the role of legislating back to the people’s elected representatives.”  

Specifically, Cassidy sent letters to the Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Education, Department of Labor, Food and Drug Administration, National Labor Relations Board, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and Employee Benefits Security Administration.
