Inside Agency Interpretation, Christopher J. Walker 2015 SelectedWorks

Inside Agency Interpretation, Christopher J. Walker

Christopher J. Walker

The Constitution vests all legislative powers in Congress, yet Congress grants expansive lawmaking authority to federal agencies. As positive political theorists have long explored, Congress intends for federal agencies to faithfully exercise their delegated authority, but ensuring fidelity to congressional wishes is difficult due to asymmetries in information, expertise, and preferences that complicate congressional control and oversight. Indeed, this principal-agent problem has a democratic and constitutional dimension, as the legitimacy of administrative governance may well depend on whether the unelected bureaucracy is a faithful agent of Congress. Despite the predominance of lawmaking by regulation and the decades-long application of principal-agent ...

Foreword — Chevron At 30: Looking Back And Looking Forward, Peter M. Shane, Christopher J. Walker 2014 SelectedWorks

Foreword — Chevron At 30: Looking Back And Looking Forward, Peter M. Shane, Christopher J. Walker

Christopher J. Walker

This Foreword introduces a Fordham Law Review symposium held in March 2014 to mark the thirtieth anniversary of Chevron U.S.A. v. Natural Resources Defense Council. The most-cited administrative-law decision of all time, Chevron has sparked thirty years of scholarly discussion concerning what Chevron deference means, when (or even if) it should apply, and what impact it has had on the administrative state. Part I of the Foreword discusses the symposium contributions that address Chevron’s scope and application, especially in light of City of Arlington v. FCC. Part II introduces the contributions that explore empirically and theoretically Chevron ...


State Farm 'With Teeth': Heightened Judicial Review In The Absence Of Executive Oversight, Catherine M. Sharkey 2014 NELLCO

State Farm 'With Teeth': Heightened Judicial Review In The Absence Of Executive Oversight, Catherine M. Sharkey

New York University Public Law and Legal Theory Working Papers

While courts and commentators have considered the information-forcing role of executive oversight and judicial review of agency action, the dynamic relationship between the two has yet to be considered. This Article presents a novel justification for heightened judicial scrutiny in the absence of meaningful executive oversight, premised on a reasoned decision-making basis. Judicial review of certain types of agency determinations should be more stringent because those determinations have not been vetted by executive oversight and are thus less likely to be premised on reasons backed by empirical support. Agency cost-benefit analyses and agency conflict preemption determinations—two realms rarely if ...

Offices Of Goodness: Influence Without Authority In Federal Agencies, Margo Schlanger 2014 University of Michigan Law School

Offices Of Goodness: Influence Without Authority In Federal Agencies, Margo Schlanger

Articles

Inducing governmental organizations to do the right thing is the central problem of public administration. Especially sharp challenges arise when “the right thing” means executing not only a primary mission but also constraints on that mission (what Philip Selznick aptly labeled “precarious values”). In a classic example, we want police to prevent and respond to crime and maintain public order, but to do so without infringing anyone’s civil rights. In the federal government, if Congress or another principal wants an executive agency to pay attention not only to its mission, but also to some other constraining or even conflicting ...

Rediscovering Congressional Intelligence Oversight: Is Another Church Committee Possible Without Frank Church?, Marc B. Langston 2014 SelectedWorks

Rediscovering Congressional Intelligence Oversight: Is Another Church Committee Possible Without Frank Church?, Marc B. Langston

Marc B. Langston

In 1975-76, the Church Committee challenged Americans’ perception of their government by uncovering and publicly releasing secret activities undertaken by the U.S. Government. U.S. Senator Frank Church’s leadership represents a model for congressional oversight and the Church Committee’s investigation and public hearings remain increasingly relevant in a new age of domestic surveillance. The attached article compares a historical model of congressional oversight and reform, as demonstrated by Senator Frank Church’s leadership as chairman of the Church Committee, with current oversight deficiencies that have induced a growing population of citizens to demand greater protections against government ...
