Description: We discuss the quantization of chiral gauge theories by lattice regularization, carefully treating the effects of the chiral anomaly. We derive a chiral gauge invariant lattice fermion action from a chiral gauge variant Wilson fermion action without changing its partition function. By lattice power counting for this formula we show that anomalous gauge theories as well as anomaly-free gauge theories are renormalizable even in 4-dimensions. Some applications and implications of this result and problems therein are discussed. 16 refs.
