Supreme Court Should Televise Health-Care Ruling Senators Say

Senators are once again urging the U.S. Supreme Court to permit television cameras to broadcast the much-anticipated ruling on the constitutionality of the health-care reform law.

Renewing a request made almost every year to the high court to televise decisions, leaders of the Senate Judiciary Committee wrote to Chief Justice John Roberts, Jr. Monday asking that he permit live TV coverage of the health-care ruling because “the issues in the case are as important and consequential as any in recent Court history.”

“Given the fundamental constitutional questions raised and the effects the decision will have, the Court should be aware of the great interest Americans have in the outcome of this case,” Sens. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) wrote in a letter to Roberts. Leahy is chairman of the judiciary panel and Grassley is the ranking Republican.
