ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the powers of the administrative state in the U.S. It discusses the two critiques made by the Federalist Society constitutionalists against the notions of powers of administrative state. These critiques are the nondelegation critique that challenges the capacity of the legislative delegation to the executive branch and the unitary executive theory that focuses on the executive branch policymaking power.
