“The end of a long process in the Senate is just the beginning of a new chapter in Steve’s distinguished record of public service for Nebraska and the nation.”

U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, released the following statement after the Senate confirmed Steve Grasz to be United States Circuit Judge for the Eighth Circuit.

“The end of a long process in the Senate is just the beginning of a new chapter in Steve’s distinguished record of public service for Nebraska and the nation. Nebraskans will have a voice on the Eighth Circuit committed to an impartial and independent judiciary – someone who understands that judges don’t write laws. At every step during this process, from his interview back in Nebraska to his hearing in the Judiciary Committee, Steve’s humility, integrity, and experience were clear. As a member of the Senate’s Judiciary Committee, I join Nebraskans across the political spectrum in wishing Steve the best in his new calling.”
