The following is a statement by Spencer Overton, President of the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies.

“The appointment of Senator Harris and Booker to the Senate Judiciary Committee is another important step in the movement to create a more representative Senate and will have a meaningful impact on how policy is considered. Senators Harris and Booker are thoughtful and passionate advocates for Americans and will have an impact on this important committee.”
