Congressional Democrats to introduce bill to expand Supreme Court from 9 to 13 justices – The Denver Post

A group of Democratic lawmakers plan to introduce a bill Thursday to expand the Supreme Court from 9 justices to 13.

In a statement on Twitter, Rep. Mondaire Jones said he is introducing the Judiciary Act of 2021 because “our democracy is under assault, and the Supreme Court has dealt the sharpest blows. To restore power to the people, we must #expandthecourt.”

Reps. Jones, Jerry Nadler, Hank Johnson and Senator Ed Markey are reportedly holding a press conference Thursday morning to unveil their bill.

The bill is unlikely to become law, given the Democrats’ slim majority in the House and Senate.
