"A handful of Democrats are trying to fix America’s increasingly polarizing Supreme Court nomination process.

On Friday, Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) released a draft bill introducing a number of reforms to the Supreme Court, including term limits for justices and changes to how presidents appoint them. Reps. Joe Kennedy (D-Mass.) and Don Beyer (D-Va.) are expected to sponsor the bill along with Khanna, the chair of the House Progressive Caucus, when they formally introduce it next week.

Among Khanna’s proposals is an 18-year term limit for justices on the Supreme Court. Current justices wouldn’t have to step down, but each president would get two appointments to the bench per term regardless of how many justices there already are. Presidents would make their nominations during the first and third years of their terms, and the Senate would have to approve them as always. But if the Senate doesn’t consider a nominee within 120 days, like what happened with former President Barack Obama’s nominee Merrick Garland, they’d automatically join the court."
