NAHB Backs Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee

The National Association of Home Builders on Tuesday came out in support of Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to be the next U.S. Supreme Court justice.

“NAHB supports President Trump’s nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett as Associate Justice to the U.S. Supreme Court,” NAHB Chairman Chuck Fowke said. “Throughout her distinguished career as a federal appellate judge and Notre Dame law professor, Judge Barrett has been recognized for her sharp legal mind and as a steadfast defender of the Constitution. In her court decisions, Judge Barrett has been a bulwark against government overreach, ruling in favor of private property rights and providing certainty for small business owners who must constantly grapple with burdensome regulations.”

Trump nominated Barrett on Saturday.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham of South Carolina announced that Barrett’s confirmation hearings will begin October 12 and are expected to last three to four days. The full Senate is expected to vote on her confirmation before the November presidential election.
