On Monday, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted on the confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court. The committee vote ended in a 11-11 tie, meaning that the Senate had to file a separate discharge motion to bring her confirmation vote to the full Senate. The vote on that motion passed with bipartisan support from Senators Susan Collins (R-ME), Mitt Romney (R-UT), and Lisa Murkowski (R-ME). They have indicated they will join the full Democratic caucus in voting for Judge Jackson’s confirmation. A vote by the full Senate is expected by April 8 before the Senate leaves on recess.

ANCOR supports the confirmation of Judge Jackson, and joined a coalition letter highlighting Judge Jackson’s judicial record and commitment to upholding disability rights.
