This Note will initially trace the historical setting in which Chadha v. Immigration and Naturalization Service was decided. In light of the staunch defense of and radical opposition to the veto, the Court's decision will then be analyzed in terms of its scope as well as its potential ramifications. The major focus will concern the future of existing laws which presently embody legislative vetoes, whether they are valid despite these provisions, and how the future of congressional oversight may be affected by the potential demise of the legislative veto. Finally, this Note will recommend a proposal by which the legislature may monitor delegated power in the wake of this landmark decision.
