Will the Supreme Court completely upend how federal agencies function?

The answer is... maybe!

SCOTUS heard arguments today on a doctrine known as “Chevron deference,” which gives agencies leeway to interpret ambiguous laws. Conservative justices are skeptical of it. If they do overturn or weaken it later this year, it’ll give courts more ability to shut down policies from the EPA, FCC, and other agency rule-making.
