House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and Regulatory Reform, Commercial and Antitrust Law Subcommittee Chairman Tom Marino (R-Pa.) released the following statement prior to the hearing:

“The central question in this debate is how much leeway should bureaucrats have in interpreting statutes passed by Congress. The laws that we charge our federal government with implementing have real impacts on hardworking American workers and households as well as American businesses. We must ensure that our laws are interpreted properly and in a manner consistent with congressional intent. This hearing will bring greater clarity to the question of what Congress must do to alleviate confusion when it comes to the proper implementation of the law.”
