An Effective and Easy Way to Challenge the Major Questions Doctrine

Judicial Overreach

For a number of years the Center for Regulatory Effectiveness has been a proponent of the Common Law Initiative. The Initiative has received considerably greater attention as a result of the Roe v. Wade decision. In a nutshell this Initiative provides a blueprint for a manageable review by the Congress of judge-made law and its origin is described on this page.

Professor Heinzerling, independent of CRE proposing the Common Law Initiative,  sets forth a compelling argument for an intervention by Congress  to address  overreach by the judiciary. Whatever one’s view on Roe v. Wade, the Congress not the courts should make  the final determination.
