According to Axios:

“The confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will begin September 4, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley said in a statement Friday.

The hearings should last three to four days, Grassley said, a timetable that aligns with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s plan to get Kavanaugh on the bench before the midterm elections.”

ANCOR has written a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee expressing concerns about Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination based on his concerning decision in a case involving people with I/DD. In that letter, ANCOR also requested that the Committee ask questions about this case during the hearing.
