The Relentless Effort To End Agencies’ Ability To Protect Americans

The Relentless Effort To End Agencies’ Ability To Protect Americans

In Relentless v. Department of Commerce, the Supreme Court is hearing a case that could hinder the ability of agencies to protect Americans in areas ranging from food and drug safety to safe workplaces, preventing air pollution, and administering Medicare.

The U.S. Supreme Court will hear combined cases Loper Bright and Relentless, which could upend Chevron deference and limit agencies’ abilities to protect Americans from billionaires, corporations, and bad actors who put profits over people. This video explains what is at stake, who will be affected, and what Congress and everyday Americans can do to push back against an out-of-control Supreme Court.
