President Biden will issue an executive order Friday to form a commission to study reforms to the United States Supreme Court.
Biden, under pressure from liberals to expand the size of the high court, promised to create the commission during a “60 Minutes” interview back in October in the wake of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death.
The 36-member commission will be bipartisan and will hold public meetings to evaluate court reforms. The new panel will have 180 days from the first meeting to complete its report of recommendations.
White House: President Biden will today issue an executive order forming the Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court.⁰⁰The Commission's purpose is to provide an analysis of the principal arguments in the contemporary public debate for and against Supreme Court reform.
