Two female former Supreme Court justices will be permanently commemorated with statues on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol.
The new law states that they will be erected in the next two years and that they should be placed near the Old Supreme Court Chamber, which is on the Senate side of the Capitol.
The Senate unanimously voted for the measure in December, and the House approved it 349-63 last month.
Former President Ronald Reagan appointed Justice O’Connor as the first woman on the high court in 1981, while Ginsburg was appointed by former President Bill Clinton in 1993. She died in the fall of 2020 at the age of 87 after a bout with pancreatic cancer.
