Supreme Court Cripples FAA Undermining Flying Safety

Undermining public safety

Executive branch agencies will likely have more difficulty regulating the environment, public health, workplace safety and other issues from a Supreme Court decision to overturn the Chevron Doctrine. It instructed lower courts to defer to federal agencies when laws passed by Congress are not crystal clear.

The 40-year-old decision has been the basis for upholding thousands of regulations by dozens of federal agencies, but has long been a target of conservatives and business groups who argue that it grants too much power to the executive branch, or what some critics call the administrative state. - AP
