    Two justices do annually testify before Congress, so I’m not sure if the CJ going there would be necessary. And, underlinings tend to be sent to do that job anyhow.

  2. Joe says:

    If not annually, it is periodically, to address funding issues, with other matters always being addressed.

    Anyway, perhaps a link to the essay, if it’s available, would be helpful.

    True, but they usually just testify about the Court’s budget request or about Court issues. My idea was geared more towards testimony about the broader judicial system, though you could just expand the scope of the budget hearing.

    I’m not sure that I can easily link to that paper — it’s not on SSRN.

    Your idea is referenced:

    I see the idea is discussed in “The Chief Justice on Capitol Hill: Extending the Humphrey-Hawkins Model, 41 Ind. L. Rev. 299 (2008)” and a quick search does not provide a free link.

    Thanks and your idea is interesting.
