The petition of the day is:


Issues: (1) Whether statutory silence, when a statute neither authorizes nor forbids an agency action, triggers Chevron deference; and (2) whether, if statutory silences triggers Chevron deference, an agency’s interpretation is reasonable when the interpretation is not based on any statutory text but instead on the absence of relevant text.
