Witnesses testified about proposed legislation to require the Supreme Court to permit video recording and broadcast of all open court proceedings. The bill provided that justices could disallow cameras in the courtroom when questions of due process were at issue.

Senators voted 11-7 to allow the legislation to move forward. Senators Grassley and Cornyn voted with Democrats to allow cameras, while Senator Feinstein voted with Republicans to not force the Court to allow cameras. In her remarks she said, “I vote no, because the Court does not want this. We should not tell the Supreme Court what to do.” close
