Washington, D.C — In response to today’s Senate Judiciary Committee votes to advance judicial nominees to the full Senate, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from Advocacy Director for Judiciary & Democracy Doug Lindner:

“Today’s votes kick off what should be a tremendous year of confirming judges who look like America and respect the people’s rights to clean air and clean water, to equal votes and equal rights. The Senate must now take action to swiftly confirm President Biden’s exceptional judicial nominees including Nancy Abudu, Rachel Bloomekatz, Bradley Garcia, Dale Ho, and Julie Rikelman. President Biden and Senate Democrats have established an incredible record of appointing distinguished judges with public-interest legal experience, but there is far more to be done. With over 100 current and announced vacancies on the federal bench, we need the White House and the Senate to prioritize filling every lifetime judgeship with personally and professionally diverse nominees.”
