 Biden signs bill boosting security for SCOTUS justices, families
by Morgan Chalfant - 06/16/22 6:52 PM ET

President Biden on Thursday signed bipartisan legislation to bolster security protection for Supreme Court justices and their families. 

The bill passed the House in a 396-27 vote on Tuesday, less than a week after an armed man was arrested outside of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home and charged with attempted murder. The White House said in a press release Thursday evening that Biden signed the bill.

The legislation, which passed the Senate last month, will provide security protections to Supreme Court justices and their families on par with those granted to some members of the executive and legislative branches. Supreme Court justices already have security details. 

It will allow around-the-clock protection for families of the justices and any officer of the court if deemed necessary. 

The bill was introduced by Sens. John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Chris Coons (D-Del.) in May, days after a leaked draft opinion signaling the court was poised to overturn the landmark abortion rights ruling Roe v. Wade fueled protests outside of the homes of conservative justices and other demonstrations throughout the country. 

The bill’s passage in the House was delayed amid a standoff over House Democrats’ demands that protections also be extended to Supreme Court staff like judicial clerks. Senate Republicans objected to that idea, however.
