There, the Court said it will defer to an agency’s interpretation of a statute if that interpretation is reasonable. However, because some on the Court saw Chevron deference as “wrest[ing] from [c]ourts the ultimate interpretive authority to ‘say what the law is’ and hand[ing] it over to the Executive,” exceptions to Chevron deference have appeared like worms after a storm.
