The Wall Street Journal: House Republicans plan to sue to block new rules allowing voting by proxy

Lawmakers are set to vote this week on a bill to reauthorize the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which has already passed the Senate, along with a bill to change elements of the Paycheck Protection Program that was created to help small businesses during the pandemic.

But House Republicans are planning to file a lawsuit later Tuesday against Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to block the chamber’s new system, according to House GOP leadership aides.

Republicans argue proxy voting, which was passed by Democrats with no GOP support, is unconstitutional. More broadly, they say that Congress has an obligation to meet in person, despite the risks.
