2. Good.

Standing is the legally protectible stake or interest that an individual has in a dispute that entitles him to bring the controversy before the court to obtain judicial relief.

Jackson argued:
It is the Executive Branch, not Congress, that is obligated to "take Care" that laws are enforced. Moreover, any injury that might arise from nondefense of a law would be to the whole Congress, which one House cannot alone assert.

Its clear the Court recognized this as a serious and problematic issue, which is why they appointed Jackson to address it.
