Liz Cheney plans to introduce election reform bill with Democrats

Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney is joining Democrats to introduce a bill regarding election reform.

The bill is expected to be introduced next week in an effort that would limit challenges by electors and the role of the vice president.

The plan

“The Select Committee has been considering legislative recommendations based on its findings concerning the January 6 attack and will share those soon,” Cheney and California Democratic Rep. Zoe Lofgren said on Thursday in a statement.

“These will include a bipartisan approach to the Electoral Count Act,” the statement added.

The concern

The two lawmakers also shared their concerns in an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal over the weekend.

“The committee will have more to say in the months to come about the full extent of Mr. Trump’s plans to overturn the 2020 election, but we also have an obligation to recommend legislation to make sure such an attack never happens again,” they wrote.

“Evidence from Republican officials in Mr. Trump’s own campaign, his administration’s Justice Department and his White House, and evidence from Republicans throughout the states at issue, has shown conclusively that his allegations of widespread fraud in the 2020 election were false,” they added.

Cheney lost her state’s primary in August and will be out of Congress after this term.

The bold push to end her time in the House will push for one last attack against the former president.
