Majority Leader Schumer Floor Remarks On Confirming Six Of President Biden’s Judicial Nominees This Week

Washington, D.C.  Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) today spoke on the Senate floor on confirming qualified judicial nominees to lifetime appointments. Below are Senator Schumer’s remarks, which can also be viewed here:

It was another productive week here on the Senate floor when it comes to judges.

By the end today, the Senate will have confirmed another six highly qualified judicial nominees to lifetime appointments on the federal bench this week: five district judges and one circuit court, with all bipartisan support.

I thank my colleagues on both sides for their cooperation.

Confirming highly qualified, diverse judges has been one of Senate Democrats’ highest priorities from the moment we entered the majority, and this was a very good week in that regard. But we are no means done.

You can be sure, that confirming judges and bringing balance to the judiciary will remain a top priority for the Senate in the days, weeks, and months ahead.
