House Republicans are urging House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to end proxy voting, which is in effect due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Pelosi announced on Monday evening that she is “hereby extending the ‘covered period’ designated on January 4, 2021 … until July 3, 2021.” This comes after the acting sergeant-at-arms wrote that “the public health emergency” due to COVID-19 “remains in effect.”
