Daily DC Insider
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced Monday that lawmakers would vote remotely until July 3, expanding a contentious clause enacted in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic.
Pelosi stated that the decision was made in response to a notification from Acting House Sergeant at Arms Timothy Blodgett that a public health emergency was already in place, despite new CDC guidance on masks and social distancing. Remote voting protocols were introduced as a precautionary measure in May of last year and have since been extended, despite opposition from some Republican lawmakers.
75% of the members of Congress are currently vaccinated and, according to the CDC, no longer pose a risk to themselves or others by gathering together.
Last week, Pelosi stated that the House chamber’s mask provision would remain in place.
