Stabenow Statement on Kavanaugh Nomination

Tuesday, July 10, 2018

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) released the following statement on the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the Supreme Court of the United States:


"This Supreme Court vacancy represents a very consequential moment for our country. I have serious concerns about Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s record. Based on his past decisions, I am deeply concerned that he would roll back women’s access to reproductive health care, make it harder for Michigan families to get affordable health coverage, particularly if they have a preexisting condition, and weaken enforcement of our environmental laws, like our clean water laws that protect our Great Lakes. I intend to review his complete record and will evaluate his nomination thoroughly."
