They often have tremendous discretion and are required to make regulations that serve the public interest. (ex: EPA- Clean Air Act) Federal Trade Commission Act creates the Federal Trade Commission and outlines their powers. Nondelegation Doctrine: delegation doctrine- the framers did not want anyone outside of congres to have the ability to write laws.
