Pres. Biden moves forward with commission to study Supreme Court “reform,” including court packing

President Joe Biden is following through on his plan for U.S. Supreme Court reform.

Breitbart reports that President Biden, on Friday, signed an executive order that will create a commission to study various ways that the U.S. Supreme Court could be reformed. 

A “bipartisan” commission

The White House announced the executive order in a statement that it released on Friday.

“President Biden will today issue an executive order forming the Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court of the United States, comprised of a bipartisan group of experts on the Court and the Court reform debate,” the statement reads.

As Breitbart points out, it would be fair to question just how “bipartisan” the group is. It will be co-chaired by Bob Bauer, a White House counsel for former President Barack Obama, and Cristina Rodriguez, who served in the Department of Justice (DOJ) during Obama’s presidency. And, all-in-all, there are only a few conservatives in the group, and just about all of them have been critical of former President Donald Trump.

The purpose of the commission

According to the White House’s statement, the commission’s purpose “is to provide an analysis of the principal arguments in the contemporary public debate for and against Supreme Court reform, including an appraisal of the merits and legality of particular reform proposals.”

The statement lists several topics that the commission will be asked to analyze including “the genesis of the reform debate; the Court’s role in the Constitutional system; the length of service and turnover of justices on the Court; the membership and size of the Court; and the Court’s case selection, rules, and practices.”

The commission is tasked with submitting its analysis within 180 days of its first public meeting.

Background

Back in October 2020, Biden said that, as president, he would look to create a “bipartisan commission” to study Supreme Court reform, and that is what he is doing.

The comes after liberals were up-in-arm about Trump getting to name three conservative justices to the Supreme Court, including Amy Coney Barrett, who was nominated and confirmed close to the 2020 presidential election.

This resulted in calls from the Democrats for the Supreme Court to be expanded so that the next Democrat to win the presidency could put more liberals on the bench.

Biden has been hesitant about doing so, having criticized the idea as a politician back in the early 1980s. This commission is as far as he has indicated that he is willing to go.
