On January 6, 2021, over 140 Republican members of the US House of Representatives protested the certification of the results of the presidential election.
After the protests on January 6, members of the House of Representatives worked on a bill that would change how they could object to the results of an election.
Currently, only one member of the Senate and House is required to object to the results of an election.
The Senate version of the bill introduced by Senator Joe Manchin and Senator Susan Collins would require a majority of members of both chambers to participate in the certification process.
The House version of the bill, which was co-written by Zoe Lofgren and Liz Cheney, would increase the threshold that would be required to trigger a protest.
The bill would also require the vice president to participate in the certification process in a strictly ceremonial manner.
The bill was supported by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer.
"In September, the two senators released a statement to say that their bill was supported by a broad range of organizations and experts. They also noted that they would continue working on introducing legislation that would fix the problems with the current certification process."
Last week, Schumer said that the Electoral Reform Act would be included in the legislation that would be passed as part of the government's spending bill.
Last week, Collins said that she was still optimistic that the bill would be included in the spending bill.
On Monday, it was reported that Collins was "delighted" that the bill would be part of the spending bill. According to the Washington Post, she called the inclusion of the bill "very significant."
The inclusion of the bill, however, was not related to the government's spending. The spending bill's text was supposed to be released on Monday, but a disagreement regarding the FBI's location has delayed its release.
