Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Last month, Congressman Biggs received his committee assignment to the House Judiciary Committee for the 116th Congress and introduced six bills under the jurisdiction of the committee. Congressman Biggs issued the following statement:

“I am pleased to have introduced these six pieces of legislation in conjunction with my role on the committee. Two of these bills, the Judicial Administration and Improvement Act and Grant’s Law, fulfill promises I have made to my constituents to remove Arizona from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and to end the flawed policy of catch and release of illegal aliens, respectively. Grant’s Law passed the House last year as part of a larger immigration enforcement package, and I am hopeful that we can again find enough lawmakers to recognize the importance of this vital policy. I look forward to working with my colleagues throughout this Congress to attempt to pass these bills.”
