U.S. Chamber Key Vote Letter on the Nomination of Amy Coney Barrett

Friday, October 23, 2020 - 9:15am

TO THE MEMBERS OF THE UNITED STATES SENATE:

            The U.S. Chamber of Commerce supports the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to be Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, opposes a filibuster of her nomination, and will include votes on this nomination in our annual “How They Voted” congressional scorecard.

            Throughout Judge Barrett’s distinguished career, she has demonstrated careful fidelity to the Constitution and the rule of law. America’s free enterprise system depends on the fair application of the law, and the Chamber has no doubt that Judge Barrett will treat all litigants – including the business community – fairly. We believe she would be an excellent Associate Justice.

            The Chamber encourages the Senate to complete its important constitutional advice-and-consent role and confirm Judge Barrett.

Sincerely,

Thomas J. Donohue
Chief Executive Officer                                   
U.S. Chamber of Commerce
