Pelosi formally authorizes remote voting for 45-day period

Nancy Pelosi has formally authorized a 45-day period during which House members can cast votes by proxy due to the pandemic. Pelosi’s announcement will also permit House committees to begin remote hearings. Under the rule, a single lawmaker can serve as a proxy for up to 10 colleagues, meaning that dozens will still need to be physically present in the House chamber for votes during the pandemic.
