Key Documents: Congressional Emergency Remote Proceedings

On May 15, 2020, the House adopted House Resolution 965 to ensure Congress can continue legislating during COVID-19. The resolution provides for the temporary implemention of remote voting on the House Floor and virtual committee proceedings during a “covered period” designated by the Speaker after receiving a notification from the Sergeant-at-Arms, in consultation with the Attending Physician, that a public health emergency due to a novel coronavirus is in effect.
