On April 5, 2024, Fred Wagner was featured on Environmental Professionals RADIO, where he discussed NEPA, the future of the Supreme Court, and DC’s acclaimed Cherry Blossom Festival. The following is an excerpt:

And what that means is, again, it's a further onus on Congress, to be specific and clear because Chevron deference said if there's something ambiguous in the statute, we rely on the expertise of the agency to get anything done.
