Washington — By a wide bipartisan margin, the House approved on a bill on Tuesday to bolster security for Supreme Court justices and their families, a move that took on added urgency after a California man allegedly armed with a knife and handgun was arrested last week outside the Maryland house of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

The bill passed the House by a vote of 396 to 27, and now heads to President Biden’s desk for his signature. Crafted by Sens. John Cornyn, a Republican of Texas, and Chris Coons, a Democrat from Delaware, the Senate passed the measure last month.

All 27 votes against the bill came from Democrats, including several prominent progressives. All but two Democrats from New Jersey voted against passage, arguing it should extend protection to federal judges as a whole. The family of a federal judge in New Jersey was targeted by a gunman in a deadly attack at their home in 2020.

The proposal, called the Supreme Court Police Parity Act, grants the marshal of the Supreme Court and Supreme Court police the authority to protect the justices’ family members or any officer of the court if protection is deemed necessary.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters Monday that Mr. Biden supports legislation to fund increased security for the Supreme Court and its members, and said the administration takes “very seriously” threats and intimidation against judges.WATCH MOREPrimaries underway in Nevada and South Carolina, involvingseveral Trump‑backed candidates

Senate Republicans implored House Speaker Nancy Pelosi not to wait any longer before bringing the measure to the House floor for a vote in the wake of the incident outside Kavanaugh’s house last week.

House Democrats sought to expand the measure to add protections for Supreme Court clerks, staff and their families. But Cornyn said the plan to amend the legislation made a “mockery” of his and Coons’ efforts, and accused House Democratic leaders of mounting a “transparent attempt to stall the legislation.”

“The line between legitimate public discourse and acts of violence has been crossed, and House Democrats cannot continue to turn a blind eye,” he said. “We don’t have time to spare when it comes to protecting the members of the court and their families.”

But House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer accused Cornyn and Senate Minority Leader McConnell of acting “either with ignorance of the facts or ignoring the facts” by rejecting changes sought by the House.

“Employees are in there because they are associated with various justices and their families are obviously associated with them,” he said Tuesday, citing online threats directed at court employees. “It is what it is and we’re going to move the bill.”

Police detained 26-year-old Nicholas John Roske early in the morning after he called local law enforcement and said he had come from California to kill a “specific United States Supreme Court justice,” according to a FBI affidavit filed in fed
