"Revesz told a Jan. 11 Resources for the Future (RFF) event on issues to watch in 2022 that the justices “were all over” the major questions doctrine during Jan. 7 oral arguments concerning the Occupational Safety & Health Administration’s (OSHA) vaccine mandate in National Federation of Independent Business v. Department of Labor, opening the door to a similar approach in the pending suit of EPA's GHG authority, West Virginia v. EPA.

Others also expect the high court’s decision in the OSHA case to portend its approach to West Virginia. 'We may get a preview from the OSHA case,' moderator Richard Newell of RFF added during the event."
