Confirm Judges Now
The Union for Reform Judaism joined 75 organizations in signing a letter urging Senators to work together in a bipartisan fashion to ensure that judicial nominees are given timely confirmation votes during the 112th Congress.
As the letter states:
"We write to you at a time when our nation faces
numerous challenges that cry out for bipartisan cooperation, including
major economic challenges and continued international threats. We
strongly believe that the continued obstruction of nominations would
poison the political atmosphere, needlessly heighten partisan tensions,
and make it far more difficult for the federal government to serve the
For these reasons, as the 112th Congress gets under way, we strongly
urge you to continue to work together in a bipartisan fashion to
proceed with prompt confirmation votes on judicial nominees who have
been approved by the Committee on the Judiciary."
