The bipartisan Reauthorizing Security for Supreme Court Justices Act permanently renews Supreme Court security
WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema’s bipartisan Reauthorizing Security for Supreme Court Justices Act, which permanently renews security for the Supreme Court, was signed into law. Sinema introduced the bill with Republican Senator Lindsey Graham (S.C.).
“Permanently renewing the Supreme Court’s security is a smart use of taxpayer dollars and ensures the Court’s police have the resources they need to protect our Justices,” said Sinema.
The Reauthorizing Security for Supreme Court Justices Act passed Congress in November. The bill permanently provides Supreme Court Police the resources and ability to deal with gaps in security caused by temporary reauthorizations. The bill also allows Justices to be protected domestically and internationally if necessary, mirroring the authority given to the Capitol Police and Secret Service as they protect members of Congress and the President.
Sinema’s LEGION Act and her Protecting Affordable Mortgages for Veterans Act were signed into law earlier this year.
