Did the Supreme Court just drive a stick into the spokes of the FCC’s Virtuous Cycle?

Location:
American Enterprise Institute (AEI), 1150 Seventeenth Street, Washington, DC, 20036, United States
Recommendation:
1

One of the most potent pending challenges to the Federal Communications Commission’s Open Internet Order will be based on the Supreme Court’s opinion in 2014 in Utility Air Regulatory Group. That case, which the court has affirmatively cited several times this past term, rejected Environmental Protection Agency efforts to “tailor” provisions of the Clean Air Act, effectively rewriting the Act to facilitate its policy goals. There is a strong -- if not perfect -- analogy to be drawn between the EPA’s approach to the Clean Air Act in that case and the FCC’s need to use forbearance in the Open Internet Order to make the rules viable.
