SHOW TRANSCRIPT

House Democrats say they'll introduce a bill that would limit Supreme Court justices to 18-year terms. 

Reuters reports the proposed bill — expected to be announced next week — would allow each president to nominate two justices per four-year term. Two of the court's current justices have been on the bench for more than 25 years.

Supporters of the bill say it would limit partisan fights over nominees.
