Tony and Clarence Go to Congress

Today, Justices Anthony Kennedy and Clarence Thomas testified before the Subcommittee on Transportation, Treasury, Housing and Urban Development, The Judiciary, District of Columbia (that's a long name) of the Committee on Appropriations. The Justices appear before Congress to discuss the budgetary needs of the Supreme Court for the coming year. C-SPAN carried the hearing live, and you can watch the replay here.

It's not the most thrilling thing to watch, but it's a chance to actually get to see two of the Justices speak on camera. There is a question from the chairman about televising the Court cases. Not surprisingly, both of the Justices are not in favor of it. Justice Thomas is very concerned about security issues, and Justice Kennedy is concerned about separation of powers issues.
