Monday, September 21, 2020

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow released the following statement on filling the vacant Supreme Court seat after Justice Ginsburg’s passing:


“The new majority on the United States Supreme Court will make decisions that directly impact our daily lives and our way of life as Americans—on fundamental issues like health care, reproductive choice, voting rights, environmental protections and civil rights. This is a pivotal time for our country. It’s critical that the people of Michigan and all Americans have the opportunity through this November’s election to make their wishes known concerning the future direction of our country. The presidential election is already underway—voters are already casting their ballots in many states. We should honor the legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg by letting the people decide and allowing the next President and the next U.S. Senate to fill the Supreme Court vacancy.”
