Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp has filed an amicus brief in the U.S. Supreme Court case of Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo, seeking to overturn the Chevron deference established in 1984. The Chevron deference gives federal agencies the power to interpret statutes, and critics argue it has led to regulatory instability and an excessive concentration of power in unelected bureaucrats. Kemp argues that overturning Chevron is essential to cut burdensome regulations and ensure that Georgia's policies reflect the will of its citizens rather than federal agency dictates. The case originated from a lawsuit filed by Loper Bright Enterprises in 2020 over monitoring regulations for Atlantic herring fishermen.
