DETROIT, MI – U.S. Senator Gary Peters (MI) released the following statement on the retirement of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer:
“I want to thank Justice Breyer for his service to our nation. Whether it was through his military service – his legal career – or his time on the federal bench – Justice Breyer’s devotion to our country has helped move our nation forward.
“The Senate must swiftly fulfill its constitutional role of advice and consent – and then vote on President Biden’s nominee. I take this role very seriously, and I look forward to reviewing the credentials, experiences and qualifications of any nominee President Biden puts forward to fill this vacancy.”
