Senators finalize bipartisan proposal designed to prevent another Jan. 6, by preventing attempts to overturn an election and ensure the peaceful transfer of power. Thoughts?

The proposed package would clarify that the vice president’s role in counting votes is merely symbolic, as well as raise the threshold for when a member of Congress can challenge an election result.

In a statement, the bipartisan group of senators said the proposal “establishes clear guidelines for our system of certifying and counting electoral votes for President and Vice President” and urged their colleagues “in both parties to support these simple, common sense reforms.”
