Interesting article in the Wall Street Journal today about the Biden administration’s executive orders and how they may not stand up in court. It includes this passage (emphasis mine):
People advising the Biden team have discussed ways to respond. These include leaning more on nonregulatory strategies, such as subsidizing renewable energy, and working with businesses to encourage voluntary behavioral change.
I’ve never seen that, at least in Chicago, mean anything other than “Nice little business you got there. Be a shame if anything happened to it.” Or “You can do that, but good luck getting your permit renewed in a year.”
Of course, from what I read in the article, there was nothing to suggest the Biden Administration might actually work with Congress to pass laws, but then again, that’s not really what Congress seems to do anymore.Published in
