    The Supreme Court overruled its 1984 decision in Chevron v. Natural Resources Defense Council in a major blow to the unelected administrative state.

    The Chevron doctrine held that courts should simply defer to an agency’s reasonable interpretation of an ambiguous statute. 

    Today, SCOTUS ruled 6-3 that courts may not defer to an agency interpretation of the law simply because a statute is ambiguous, and instead should exercise independent judgment in deciding whether an agency has acted within its statutory authority.

    Connecticut Attorney General William Tong released a statement after the decision.

    “This decision will inject a new level of uncertainty across all levels of federal agency actions,” said AG Tong. “From environmental regulations to consumer protection and public health, this decision undermines the ability of government agencies to protect public health and safety. Functional government loses today.”

    Meanwhile, conservatives everywhere are celebrating that “Chevron is overruled.”

    No, not really.
    This ruling does not roll back the Administrative State, nor will any other foray - because you don't really want it to. None of you want to live outside the cocoon that our Mommy State provides, protecting you from all manners of inconvenience and ultimate personal responsibility.
    Face it.
    And AG Tong, dry your eyes. It's little more than a speedbump in your expediting of the Matrix (that's prison for you simpletons).
