Members of Congress Ask Court for Same-day Audio of Upcoming Opinion Announcements

Today, sixteen Members of Congress sent a letter to Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., "to urge the Court to provide the American people with access to live audio of its court proceedings for the first time."
People may disagree on the outcome of any given case, but we can all agree that the American public is better served when all three branches of our government are transparent and accessible... 
Over the course of the next few weeks, the Court will announce opinions in closely-watched cases that will impact the lives of millions of individuals and families across America. Accordingly, the Court should provide the American people the opportunity to hear in real tim the arguments and opinions that will shape our society for years to come.
