American Agri-Women Applaud Supreme Court’s Landmark Decision in Loper Bright v. Raimondo

 CROOKSTON, Minn. (AgPR) July 2, 2024 | American Agri-Women, a leading voice for women in agriculture, enthusiastically supports the Supreme Court's recent decision in the case of Loper Bright v. Raimondo, which overturns the Chevron doctrine. This ruling is a significant victory for farmers, ranchers, and small businesses across America.

The Supreme Court's decision marks a pivotal moment in the fight against bureaucratic overreach. It ensures that the power to create laws remains with Congress, as intended by the Founding Fathers, and not with unelected government agencies. The case, which involved a group of herring fishermen in New Jersey, highlights the broader implications for all small businesses facing burdensome and unjust regulations.


Americans for Prosperity described the ruling as a "momentous victory" for small businesses, emphasizing the undue financial burdens placed on the fishermen by government-imposed monitoring fees. "This decision helps protect the right of these fishermen to work for their own livelihood without having to pay for big brother to literally watch over their shoulder," the organization stated.


National Cattleman's Beef Association (NCBA) also praised the ruling, highlighting its impact on federal regulatory practices. NCBA President Mark Eisele noted, “Cattle producers have experienced numerous instances of federal agencies enacting overreaching regulations on our farms and ranches, exceeding their authority granted by Congress. I am glad the Supreme Court is reining in these federal agencies and putting power back in the hands of those elected to represent us in Washington.”


The Cavalry Group hailed the decision as a triumph for the rule of law and a restoration of power to the people. Alexander Penalta, Esq., General Counsel for The Cavalry Group, commented, “This SCOTUS ruling comes at a perfect time when regulatory agencies have been overreaching their proper role by writing licensees up for violations that are inconsistent with the law.”


House Committee on Agriculture Chairman Glenn "GT" Thompson (PA-15) echoed these sentiments, stating, "In overturning the Chevron doctrine, the Supreme Court has taken a significant step in reaffirming a core principle of our Constitution: the power to legislate rests with Congress. For too long, unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats have wielded unchecked power with wide-reaching implications. I welcome the Supreme Court’s ruling and the restoration of the balance of power between the Executive and Legislative branches."


American Agri-Women believes this decision will have far-reaching positive effects on the agricultural community, safeguarding the livelihoods of farmers and ranchers from undue regulatory burdens. We applaud the Supreme Court for upholding the Constitution and restoring the balance of power in our government.
