On Tuesday, January 31, 2017, President Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch from the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Such enforcement should be consistent with congressional intent throughout the past many decades, thereby ensuring the robust continuation of free and competitive markets.”
