Washington, D.C. – Today, the U.S. Senate confirmed Neil Gorsuch as the newest Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. Congressman Biggs issued the following statement:

He embodied the principles and values vital to keeping our country’s constitutional foundation, and I hope aspiring judges look to his work for inspiration and guidance.
