Scalia Blasts `Unelected Agency Officials'

by Wochit 0:42 mins

Justice Antonin Scalia delivered one of his signature dissents in yesterday’s EPA vs. EPE Homer City Generation, where the Supreme Court upheld the power of the Environmental Protection Agency to dictate state air pollution standards. Scalia starts with this trumpet blast: "Too many important decisions of the Federal Government are made nowadays by unelected agency officials exercising broad lawmaking authority, rather than by the people’s representatives in Congress." Scalia’s complaint is that the EPA, with the Supreme Court’s blessing, has expanded its authority beyond the text of the Clean Air Act.
