Panama Refining Company v. Ryan

PANAMA REFINING COMPANY V. RYAN

PANAMA REFINING COMPANY V. RYAN (293 U.S. 388 [1935]). The National Industrial Recovery Act of 1933, among other delegations of power, authorized the president to limit the transportation in interstate and foreign commerce of oil to the production level permitted by the state from which the oil was shipped. The Supreme Court, in Panama Refining Company v. Ryan, known as the "Hot Oil" case, invalidated this provision by declaring that Congress had delegated essential legislative power to the president. Shortly afterward, Congress passed an act that preserved this system of regulating oil shipments while avoiding such broad delegation of power.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
