Recall our class discussion of the Congressional Review Act as a response to the Supreme Court’s decision in INS v. Chadha. Last week, several Senate Republicans and a few conservative Democrats threatened to invoke the CRA against a forthcoming EPA rule regulating carbon dioxide and other air pollutants. Later this semester, we’ll read the Supreme Court’s “landmark 2007 ruling” mentioned in the New York Times article (Massachusetts v. EPA). Is this an appropriate use of the CRA? Who is likely to win this showdown between the legislative and executive branches? (Thanks to Tate Hemingson for the link).
