Employment by the Government: Who May Be an Inferior Officer? Who May Appoint Inferior Officers? General Principles The Constitution reflects a fundamental conviction that governmental "power is of an encroaching nature, and that it ought to be effectually restrained from passing the limits assigned to it.
Citizens for the Abatement of Aircraft Noise, Inc. The founders, not content to rely on paper definitions of the rights secured to the people, "viewed the principle of separation of powers as a vital check against tyranny. The resulting division of governmental authority is not a mere set of housekeeping rules indicating which branch presumptively performs which functions; it is, rather, a fundamental means by which the Constitution attempts to ensure free, responsible, and democratic government.
The constitutional separation of powers advances this central purpose by "assur[ing] full, vigorous, and open debate on the great issues affecting the people"; 2 by "placing both substantive and procedural limitations on each [branch]"; 3 and by maintaining a "system of.
Executive branch lawyers thus have a constitutional obligation, one grounded not in parochial institutional interests but in our fundamental duty to safeguard the liberty of the people, to assert and maintain the legitimate powers and privileges of the President against inadvertent or intentional congressional intrusion.
As Attorney General William Mitchell put it long ago: Since the organization of the Government, Presidents have felt bound to insist upon the maintenance of the Executive functions unimpa[i]red by legislative encroachment, just as the legislative branch has felt bound to resist interferences with its power by the Executive.
To acquiesce in legislation having a tendency to encroach upon the executive authority results in establishing dangerous precedents. It enjoins upon its branches separateness but interdependence, autonomy but reciprocity.
United States, U. The Constitution thus guards against "the accumulation of excessive authority in a single Branch" not by providing mutually exclusive lists of executive, legislative, and judicial powers, but by imposing on each of the three branches "a degree of overlapping responsibility, a duty of interdependence as well as independence.
Some general observations on the sources and methodology we employ in analyzing separation of powers questions are appropriate. We believe that the constitutional structure obligates the executive branch to adhere to settled judicial doctrine that limits executive and legislative power.
First, where "[e]xplicit and unambiguous provisions of the Constitution prescribe and define. At the same time, the executive branch has an independent constitutional obligation to interpret and apply the Constitution.
This is due in part to the limits of jurisdiction and justiciability that Article III places on the courts.
In addition there may be legislation that violates one of the three principles outlined above and yet is unlikely to reach the courts in a form or context in which the judiciary will be able to identify or remedy the constitutional problem. See The Constitutionality of the Bank Bill: The Bicameralism and Presentment Requirements and the Appointments Clause While the expression "separation of powers" does not appear in the Constitution, the Constitution does require both separation and interdependence on some matters by specifying, expressly and precisely, the procedures that must be followed.
With a few express exceptions found or rooted in the constitutional text, Metropolitan Washington Airports Auth. The classic and often-repeated violation of this express textual requirement is the "legislative veto" mechanism invalidated in Chadha. Those repositories are "the President alone.
Congress may not employ any mode of exercising legislative power other than through bicameralism and presentment. In section II of this memorandum, we discuss questions that have arisen concerning the scope of both requirements.
Just as the textual requirement of bicameralism and presentment limits the means by which Congress may legislate, so the anti-aggrandizement principle limits the means by which Congress may influence the execution or adjudication of the laws.
However, "once Congress makes its choice in enacting legislation, its participation ends," and "Congress can thereafter control the execution of its enactment only indirectly -- by passing new legislation.
While Congress may inform itself of how legislation is being implemented through the ordinary means of legislative oversight and investigation, the anti-aggrandizement principle forbids Congress, directly or through an agent subject to removal by Congress, 23 from intervening in the decision making necessary to execute the law.
In contrast, the Court upheld the validity of the laws challenged in Morrison v. See Morrison, U. An affirmative answer to the question of whether Congress has prevented the executive or judiciary from accomplishing its functions, furthermore, would not lead inexorably to the judicial invalidation of the statute: While the Court acknowledged that the statute rendered the independent counsel "free from Executive supervision to a greater extent than other federal prosecutors," it was unpersuaded that the limitations placed on that supervision meant that the President would not be able "to perform his constitutionally assigned duties.
Examples of such legislation may include burdensome reporting requirements, attempts to dictate the processes of executive deliberation, and legislation that has the purpose or would have the effect of "micromanaging" executive action.
Executive branch agencies should be careful to object to any legislation that unduly reduces the accountability of officials or agencies to the President, or that unnecessarily interferes with the flexibility and efficiency of executive decision making and action.Essay on The Adverse Flaws of Chevron Corporation - Robert B.
