AAF Files 12 Amicus Briefs Questioning Chevron Deference

January 25th, 2024

Advancing American Freedom, along with 16 other organizations, filed an amicus brief in Mayfield v. Department of Labor, again focusing on Chevron Deference and the overstep of the separation of powers.

“It is not the job of bureaucrats in DC to dictate the day-to-day operations of a local Dairy Queen, but that is what Chevron Deference has allowed. Chevron Deference has rightly come under intense scrutiny for the way it blurs the lines between the branches of government,” said J. Marc Wheat, AAF General Counsel. “A return to the Constitution and its competing branches will be a necessary step toward cultivating a political ecosystem conducive to the flourishing of liberty.”
