U.S. House passes election bill spurred by Jan. 6, but fate unclear

Summary by Ground News
The Presidential Election Reform Act was introduced by Reps. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) It would require a third of House members to sign onto an objection to certifying a state's presidential electors, a significantly higher threshold than the current requirement of just one House member and one senator. The bill would also narrow the grounds for filing an objection, while clarifying that the role of the vice president in the process is purely ceremonial. The bill passed in a 229-203 vote, with nine Republicans joining all Democrats present in supporting the measure.
