Peters Statement on Supreme Court Vacancy

DETROIT, MI – U.S. Senator Gary Peters released the following statement about the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court:

“With a vacancy on the Supreme Court, the stakes for Michigan families couldn’t be higher: health care protections for people with pre-existing conditions, Roe v. Wade and women’s health care, civil rights, voting rights, and workers’ rights are on the line. Acting on a lifetime appointment to our nation’s highest court with 45 days until Election Day would further divide the Senate and our country — and voting is already underway or will soon begin, including in Michigan. Voters should have their voices heard, and there should not be a Supreme Court nomination until the next presidential term begins.”
