House Judiciary Approves Major Transparency Bill

From a Blog Post by Gabe Roth, Executive Director of Fix the Court:

Fix the Court today applauded the bipartisan work of the House Judiciary Committee to reach a compromise on – and pass out of committee – a bill that would vastly improve transparency in the third branch.

Within one year of the bill’s passage, same-day audio release for Supreme Court oral arguments would be required; live audio at the high court would be required within two years and live video for all circuit court arguments also within two years. The bill would compel the Judicial Conference of the U.S. to create a code of conduct that the justices would also be bound to and the SCOTUS clerk to post online the reasoning behind each of the justice’s recusals when they occur.
