The bill would increase the number of justices on the Supreme Court from nine to thirteen.

Republicans currently hold 6 seats, while Democrats hold just 3 after the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg and the confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett.

The bill is sponsored by House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler, Subcommittee chair Hank Johnson, and freshman Rep. Mondaire Jones.

In the Senate, the bill is being championed by Ed Markey of Massachusetts.
