With the recent Supreme Court decision in West Virginia vs EPA, it looks like there is a small crack in the wall of "administrative law" that has been one of the keys to the growth of the Regulatory/Welfare State. Mike and Mitch discuss this decision and the underlying principles at stake including the famous Chevron and Auer deference.
