DEMAND JUSTICE STATEMENT ON REPS. MENG, NAPOLITANO, AND PAYNE COSPONSORING SUPREME COURT EXPANSION BILL 

WASHINGTON, DC— Demand Justice Executive Director Brian Fallon issued the following statement Monday praising Reps. Grace Meng (D-NY), Grace Napolitano (D-CA), and Donald Payne (D-NJ) for becoming the latest co-sponsors of the Judiciary Act of 2021, which would add four seats to the Supreme Court:

“We are glad to see more Democrats stepping up to support Supreme Court expansion following the Court’s attack on abortion rights. Expanding the Court is the only way to prevent the Republican supermajority from dealing further blows to our basic rights, and we are grateful to have three more champions for critical reform in this fight with us.”  

Last week, following the Supreme Court’s ruling on Texas anti-abortion law SB8, Reps. Steve Cohen (D-TN), Jesús G. “Chuy” García (D-IL), and Frederica Wilson (D-FL) also became co-sponsors of the Judiciary Act of 2021.
