America's Administrative State: The Origins and Consequences of Judicial Deference t Federal Agencies
Washington Legal Foundation - Critical Legal Issues Working Paper Series (2016)
  • Mr. Richard O. Faulk, George Mason University
Abstract

Continued allegiance to such practices will further dilute the democratic guarantees and political accountability necessary for truly representative government.
