The Hill:

Reps. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) and Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), both members of the Jan. 6 select committee, will introduce legislation this week to reform the Electoral Count Act, a 1887 law that outlines how electoral votes are cast and counted following presidential elections.

The legislation has been highly anticipated since the Jan. 6 panel began its work investigating the Capitol attack, but details on the bill have not yet been released.

The bipartisan duo said they will introduce reforms this week, and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said the lower chamber “may also consider” the legislation in the coming days.

On the Senate side, lawmakers are continuing talks on government funding as Congress inches closer to the Sept. 30 deadline. Negotiations are currently focused on a permitting reform measure that is causing a fissure in the Democratic party.
