Coats Statement on Supreme Court Ruling on Recess Appointments

by Coats for Senator Press Release on June 26, 2014

Thursday, June 26, 2014

WASHINGTON, DC – Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind.) today released the following statement after the Supreme Court’s unanimous decision in NLRB v. Noel Canning, which declared President Barack Obama’s recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board unconstitutional: 
“Today, the Supreme Court restored a measure of balance to our system by unanimously ruling that the president’s attempts to make recess appointments while the Senate was in session were unconstitutional, and I applaud the decision. The Founders defined the powers of the president in Article II of the Constitution and set a clear limitation on his authority to make appointments, stipulating that he must obtain the ‘advice and consent of the Senate.’ This check on executive power is essential to maintaining the integrity of our republic. As a former senator and lecturer on constitutional law, this president should have known better. President Obama has frequently boasted of his intention to bypass Congress on a range of issues, and I hope this unanimous rebuke will cause him to reflect on what it means to exercise executive authority with respect for the elected representatives of the American people.”
