President Trump on Sept. 26 nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as the next Associate Justice on the Supreme Court.
In a statement responding to the president’s choice, NAHB Chairman Chuck Fowke said:
"NAHB supports President Trump's nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett as Associate Justice to the U.S. Supreme Court. 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."
