The House needs temporary flexibility from its current rules to allow members to vote & committees to conduct their business safely during the coronavirus pandemic. This resolution allows lawmakers to vote remotely by proxy, committees to hold remote hearings, and clears the way for a potential secure technological means for members to vote remotely.
The House of Representatives has already changed its procedures in terms of voting and committee hearings to allow members to socially distance during the pandemic while still accomplishing their work. There’s no reason to allow proxy voting. Members of Congress shouldn’t consider themselves above showing up in person to do “essential” work.
