Washington, September 1, 2020

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Chairman of the House Committee on the Judiciary, released a report detailing the Committee’s legislative accomplishments over the past year and a half for the American people.

“Throughout the 116th Congress, the Judiciary Committee has found itself at the forefront of efforts to preserve the rule of law and provide for a more just society for all. In addition to conducting oversight of the Trump Administration, the Committee has maintained a robust legislative agenda across all our subcommittees – including addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, the ongoing crisis of police brutality, and much more. I am immensely proud to lead the Judiciary Committee during this critical juncture in history, and I will continue to prioritize a legislative agenda that will move our nation toward a more perfect union,” said Chairman Nadler.

Under Democratic leadership, the Judiciary Committee has taken action to keep Americans safe in their communities, especially from gun violence, ensure free and fair elections without foreign interference or voter suppression tactics, provide for a more just and humane immigration system that aligns with our values and ideals, preserve access to justice in the federal courts, protect consumers from corporate abuses, lower prescription drug prices, and preserve a strong intellectual property system that promotes innovation and drives economic growth.
