About Senator Chuck Grassley:

Senator Grassley was sworn in as Senate president pro tempore for the 116th Congress, which places him third in the presidential line of succession. He leverages his seniority in the United States Senate to build bipartisan coalitions and advance a conservative agenda to improve opportunity and prosperity for more Americans. As the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, Senator Grassley continues vigorous congressional oversight of the executive branch to make sure the federal government does its job. He is also building upon his longstanding record to work across the aisle to solve problems. Specifically, Chairman Grassley has announced his list of priorities includes improving the lives of Americans through better trade, health care and tax policies.

During his four-year chairmanship of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Grassley shepherded a historic 85 federal judges — including two Supreme Court justices and an all-time record 30 federal circuit judges — through the Senate’s advice-and-consent authority for lifetime appointments to the federal bench. He also held hearings and readied for votes another 50 judicial nominees, including 6 more circuit nominees, for his successor.  His signature legislative achievement as chairman of the Judiciary Committee was landmark, bipartisan criminal justice reform called the First Step Act. It passed the Senate 87-12 and was signed into law in December 2018.
