Collins supports Supreme Court Police

In Local Area News

Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, gave the following statement on the House floor regarding the Reauthorizing Security for Supreme Court Justices Act, H.R. 4258. 

Below are the remarks as prepared.

Ranking Member Collins: Mr. Speaker, I rise today in support of H.R. 4258, the Reauthorizing Security for Supreme Court Justices Act. I am proud to stand here today, Mr. Speaker, in support of the Supreme Court Police.

For decades, the Supreme Court Police have protected Supreme Court Justices and employees on the grounds of the Supreme Court and protected Justices when they travel. 

However, the authorization for the Supreme Court Police expires at the end of this year. This legislation will permanently authorize the Supreme Court Police.

Additionally, it fixes a loophole in existing law that has limited the Supreme Court Police’s ability to protect Justices in Territories of the United States and abroad. 

I commend this House for permanently reauthorizing the protection of Supreme Court Justices and fixing the loophole in the law. I look forward to passing the Reauthorizing Security for Supreme Court Justices Act to ensure the protection of our Justices. 

I’d like to thank Congressmen Greg Steube and Greg Stanton for their work on this legislation and their support of the Supreme Court Police.
