A new bill aimed at reforming the federal judiciary would add a code of ethics for the U.S. Supreme Court, require justices to say why they recused themselves from cases and make online access to court records free for most users.

The bill would also require the Supreme Court to start offering live audio of oral arguments within two years, have judges’s financial disclosures posted online within 90 days of the judiciary receiving them, and streamline the online case management for courts to make it easier for researchers and others to access and track cases across the judiciary.
