Governments are strictly following the constitution. A new paper published in Review of international organizations provides a database “that measures compliance with national governments and laws”:
It includes information on de jure constitution and their data Then implementation. Individual compliance indicators can be divided into four categories that we combine into an overall compliance indicator: property and legal rights, political rights, civil rights, and civil rights. The database covers 175 countries for the period 1900 to 2020 and can be used by researchers who are interested in investigating the monitoring or consequences of (non-compliance) laws. Our analysis of compliance policies in this country shows a long-term increase in compliance, which occurred mainly around 1990. The Americas saw a significant increase in compliance, while Africa and Europe changed especially at the end of the Cold War. Democracies – especially those with parliamentary and mixed systems – show more rule of law than democracies, where military regimes do worse. The structure of the constitution is also important: Laws that allow the dismissal of the head of state or government for breaking the law are followed by many others.

The decision of the Supreme Court yesterday in Sackett v. EPA limits the federal government’s control over wetlands. The court held that the Clean Water Act (CWA) applies to “wetlands that are in continuous contact with bodies that are ‘waters of the United States’ in themselves” and are “not identified” with those waters, thus rejecting the lower court. A broad overview of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) jurisdiction in other areas.
The case stems from a dispute over the property of Michael and Chantell Sackett. The Sacketts wanted to fill their Priest Lake, Idaho, and build a house there. But the EPA said the site is a wetland, so the backlog violates the CWA’s ban on dumping pollutants into the water. “waters of the United States.”
The EPA defined the Sacketts’ site as a wetland because it was located near a ditch that fed into a stream that fed a passing lake, located on land. The Sacketts said their property does not contain “waters of the United States.”
The US District Court and the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit agreed with the EPA. Now, the Supreme Court has sided with Sacketts. From Volokh’s plot:
According to Justice Alito, this means that wetlands that have continuous surface water flow or are directly connected to it can be regulated as part of the waters of the United States, wetlands that are “separate” from such waters cannot be, even if they meet the broad definition of “contiguous.” He wrote:
In short, we believe that the CWA extends only to wetlands that are “as a common feature of waters of the United States.” Rapanos, 547 US, at 755 (plurality opinion) (emphasis omitted). This requires the party to have control over the neighboring swamps to establish “first, where [body of water constitutes] . . . ‘water[s] of the United States,’ (eg, permanent waters connected to traditional navigable waters); and secondly, that wetlands are continuously connected to the water, making it difficult to determine where ‘water’ ends and ‘wetland’ begins.
