Delegation, Deference, and the FCC, by Randolph May

by Guest Blogger — Wednesday, July 10, 2019

During the last week of its just-ended term, the Supreme Court handed down two eagerly anticipated decisions with significant implications for administrative law and, indeed, more broadly, for separation of powers constitutional jurisprudence. The two decisions are Gundy v. United States and Kisor v. Wilkie. While there will be thousands of pages in law reviews, […]

Ever since I started law school in 1990, almost thirty years ago, I’ve been hearing that the Court’s libertarian-legalist conservatives would definitely invalidate some statute or other on nondelegation grounds, any day now, without question.

In Jeff’s post last Thursday, he makes the following observation about the continuing role of the nondelegation doctrine in administrative law: Would it make sense, for example, to trade a more vigorously enforceable non-delegation doctrine in exchange for radically lightened notice-and-comment procedural requirements, less monitoring of the use of non-legislative rules, more simplified judicial review […]
