On December 7, 2021, the Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court of the United States (Commission) submitted its final report to President Biden. The Commission is comprised of a bipartisan group of experts whose task is to provide an analysis of the arguments for and against the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) reform. The Commission, in its final report, explains the history of the reform debate, “examines proposals to expand or otherwise alter the current structure” of the Court, and assesses proposals for introducing non-renewable term limits for SCOTUS justices. The report further explores the proposals about reducing the Court’s jurisdiction and addresses SCOTUS’s internal procedures and practices.
According to a White House press release, President Biden will now review the report without either accepting or denying the recommendations. The President does not have an agreed timeline to review the report.
