CHARLOTTE, NC – With Honor Action applauds the potential inclusion of the Electoral Count Reform Act of 2022 (ECA) in a forthcoming FY23 Omnibus Appropriations bill. S.4573 – The Electoral Count Reform Act of 2022 enjoys broad bipartisan support in both the House and Senate. If passed, this landmark legislation would reform and modernize an outdated, 19th century law that establishes procedures for counting electoral votes. In addition to updating old Electoral College rules, the ECA would specify the Vice President’s role as purely ministerial and protect each states’ popular vote.
“The work members are putting in across party lines to ensure a healthy separation of powers is incredibly encouraging,” said Rye Barcott, CEO and Co-Founder of With Honor Action. “The ECA is uncontroversial and represents simple good governance. I hope to see it included in the final appropriations bill.”
For further information on the ECA, please refer to this one-pager shared by the bill’s lead sponsor Senator Susan Collins of Maine. Other co-sponsors include military veterans and U.S. Senators Todd Young of Indiana and Mark Kelly of Arizona.
