Washington, D.C. - (KELO-AM)

U.S. Senator John Thune (R-South Dakota), Chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, today released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected the Obama administration’s attempt to violate the separation of powers: 

“When the president couldn’t get his appointments through the Senate, he decided to ignore the law and attempt an end run around Congress. I am pleased that the Supreme Court unanimously rejected the president’s attempt to circumvent the Constitution. Today’s decision reaffirms the fact that Congress, not the president, has the authority to determine its own rules.”   Permalink: http://www.thune.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/2014/6/thune-statement-on-supreme-court-s-rebuke-of-unconstitutional-recess-appointments
