From Fix The Court:

As a result of the impasse, at the start of this congressional session 18 organizations from the government transparency, civic engagement and media trades – led by FTC, Project on Government Oversight and the R Street Institute – asked House and Senate leaders to craft new court reform legislation comprising principles that, implemented together, would vastly improve transparency and accountability in the judiciary. Rather than proposing specific legislation at the start, the groups united behind overarching ideas, which led to productive discussions with House Judiciary leadership over the last 14 months, including hearings before the Courts Subcommittee last June and September, and resulted in the legislative language introduced today.
