U.S. House clears way for passage of election bill spurred by Jan. 6, but fate unclear

The U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday advanced legislation overhauling Congress’ certification process for presidential elections, as Democrats hope to prevent the kind of chaos that ensued on Jan. 6, 2021, when rioters tried to subvert Joe Biden’s victory. On a vote of 219-209, with most Republicans in opposition, the House approved the rules for debating the measure, clearing the way for a vote on passage. The current process, which is laid out in the 1887 Electoral Count Act, came under scrutiny after hundreds of supporters of Republican then-President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol in a deadly attempt to stop the certification of Democrat Biden as the new president.
