Press Release

WASHINGTON—Congressman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX), Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, released the following statement after the Senate’s confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court:

“By all accounts, the Senate has just confirmed to the highest court in the land a brilliant legal mind who is dedicated to the Constitution and its principles of liberty.  Our President made an outstanding pick in nominating Neil Gorsuch, and Senate Majority Leader McConnell made the right decision not to allow the fringe elements of the Left to stop this nomination by using the filibuster.  I am thrilled Neil Gorsuch will fill the late Justice Scalia’s seat.  Congratulations, Justice Gorsuch.”
