Matsui Statement on Trump Nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court

 Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Doris Matsui (CA-06) issued the following statement on President Trump’s  nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill the Supreme Court seat left vacant by Anthony Kennedy:

“President Trump has announced a Supreme Court nomination that could reverse generations of progress for this country. With his selection of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the President has put at risk, among other important issues, women’s rights to make decisions about reproductive healthcare, pre-existing conditions protections, key environmental protections, the capacity of the Court to be an independent check on executive authority, and equal protection under the law. The American people deserve a voice before this nomination proceeds.”
