Floor Schedule and Procedure:

 

Begin Consideration of H.R. 8873 – Presidential Election Reform Act (Reps. Lofgren/Cheney – House Administration)

 

The Presidential Election Reform Act (PERA) will reform the Electoral Count Act to ensure that Congress counts the votes as required by the Constitution, including by ensuring that Congress receives a single accurate electoral certificate from each state, requiring that States select electors in accordance with state law existing as of the date of the election, providing a federal judicial remedy in the event that a state governor refuses to certify the lawful result of a presidential election, and in other ways. The reforms do not benefit either political party. PERA will help ensure the events of January 6, 2021, are not repeated at future counts.

The Rule will provide for one hour of debate equally divided and controlled by the Chair and Ranking Member of the Committee on House Administration.

Complete Consideration of S. 1098 – Joint Consolidation Loan Separation Act (Sen. Warner – Education and Labor)

 

This bill provides the ability for borrowers to sever an existing consolidated loan.

 

This bill permits borrowers who previously joined their loans as a married couple to submit an application to the Department of Education to split their joint consolidated loan into two separate federal direct loans, split proportionally based on the percentages that each borrower originally brought into the loan. The two new federal direct loans would have the same interest rate as the consolidated loan. The bill also provides a pathway for a borrower to apply to separate their debt from an ex-spouse or current spouse, including in the event of an absentee or unresponsive spouse, an act of domestic violence, or economic abuse. This bill was passed by unanimous consent in the Senate.
