WASHINGTON – Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and eight other House members have written Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts urging him to provide the American public greater access to the nation’s highest court by allowing video and live audio broadcasts of its proceedings.

In their letter, the congressmen said, “It is only reasonable for the American people to have an opportunity to hear firsthand the arguments and opinions that will shape their society for years to come.”

Connolly is also the sponsor of legislation to  permit television coverage of all open sessions of the U.S. Supreme Court unless a majority of justices decided that allowing coverage of a particular case would violate the due process rights of a party appearing before the court.
