These include matters related to constitutional interpretation, separation of powers, non-delegation of legislative authority, and the scope of independent regulatory agencies. In this dashboard, we present a selection of the most relevant dimensions of Federal Regulatory activity as it pertains to the ongoing effort to delineate a sensible, constitutionally grounded relationship between the federal government, states, local governments, and businesses.
