Official Account of Senator Chuck Schumer, New York’s Senator and the Senate Majority Leader.
The Respect for Marriage Act is a momentous step toward greater justice for millions of Americans. No one in a same-sex marriage or an interracial marriage should have to worry if their marriage will be invalidated.
I was honored to introduce Judge Reyes to @JudiciaryDems . He'd be only the 2nd Hispanic man to sit on the EDNY bench. He’s from Brooklyn, and he’s fought to make sure the law works equally for all, for voting rights, for workers, for consumers. Our courts need people like him.
Introducing the newest District Court Judge for the Northern District of NY: Albany's Anne Nardacci! For the first time in history, the NDNY bench is now majority-female. It was previously all-male. I was proud to recommend three incredible women—some of the best legal minds!
BIG: This Senate has now confirmed 87 diverse and highly qualified judges to the federal bench. And we will keep going!
