President Establishes Commission on the U.S. Supreme Court

Reviewing the role and function of the Court, with recommendations on reforms.

On Friday, President Joe Biden issued an executive action establishing the Presidential Commission on the U.S. Supreme Court. The commission will be comprised of 36 members who are appointed by the president.

The president’s order stated, “Members of the Commission shall be distinguished constitutional scholars, retired members of the Federal judiciary, or other individuals having experience with and knowledge of the Federal judiciary and the Supreme Court of the United States.”

The commission will be tasked with compiling a report for the president covering the contemporary and historical role and function of the Supreme Court, with analysis for and against reforms of the Supreme Court, as well as public comment. The report will be due within 180 days of the first public meeting of the commission.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That the Presidential Commission would do a thorough review and bring appropriate analysis in their report.
  • For the Supreme Court justices to be discerning in their upcoming rulings.
  • For the president and his administration to seek God’s wisdom as they consider reforms.
