Partnership for Public Service statement on the Supreme Court’s ruling in Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo

June 28, 2024

WASHINGTON – The nonpartisan, nonprofit Partnership for Public Service today released the following statement from President and CEO Max Stier on the Supreme Court’s ruling in Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo

“The Supreme Court’s decision today undermines the ability of expert, nonpartisan public servants to effectively address the critical issues facing our country. Eliminating the longstanding principle of ‘Chevron deference’ erodes the foundation of our government’s effectiveness by stripping federal agencies of their power to interpret and implement ambiguous statutes.

“Federal agencies staffed by dedicated public servants with specialized experience and expertise and chosen on merit are a cornerstone of our democracy. The clear result of today’s decision will be a government that is less effective, less responsive, and less equipped to respond to the demands of the public.”

“In the wake of this decision, Congress must seek ways to clarify the role of agencies in the rule-making process and ramp up its internal regulatory expertise to end the uncertainty created by this ruling.”

During the past 22 years, the nonpartisan, nonprofit Partnership for Public Service has been dedicated to building a better government and a stronger democracy. We work across administrations to help transform the way government works by providing agencies with the data insights they need to succeed, developing effective leaders, inspiring the next generation to public service, facilitating smooth presidential transitions and recognizing exceptional federal employees.
