Pass the Supreme Court Biennial Appointments and Term Limits Act!

Supreme Court decisions impact every American and every aspect of our lives. And yet, the majority of Americans have lost faith in the Court’s ability to act as a neutral arbiter of the law. Each session, the Court hands down decisions that are increasingly divorced from the values and viewpoints of the American people. It’s time for Congress to restore public trust in the Court by creating term limits for the Supreme Court. A supermajority of Americans—7 out of 10—support passing term limits for our highest court. The Supreme Court Biennial Appointments and Term Limits Act, introduced by Senator Whitehouse, would create 18-year term limits and give presidents two Supreme Court appointments during each term they are in office, creating a Court that is more representative of the American people. No other major democracy in the world gives lifetime appointments to judges, and 49 of our states already have term limits, mandatory retirement ages, or elections for members of their highest courts. It’s time the federal government follows their lead. As a constituent, I am urging you to become a cosponsor of the Supreme Court Biennial Appointments and Term Limits Act and build support among your colleagues in Congress. It’s time to restore trust in the highest court in our land.
