“I could not be more pleased to see this 40-year-old rule struck down,” said Attorney General Labrador.  “Idaho, as much as any state or entity, has witnessed the weaponization of an entire branch of our federal government.  The Biden Administration’s agencies have attacked our state repeatedly using the Chevron Deference doctrine to create and interpret rules that usurp the power of Congress to write laws. Countless businesses, industries, and individuals have suffered unjustly under Chevron. It’s time our Republic was restored to the three equal branches of government originally intended, instead of an activist executive branch continuously undermining the legislative.  I applaud this decision from the Supreme Court and look forward to the long overdue re-balance.”
