House Passes January 6 Commission

Investigation supported by some minority party members.

This week, the House of Representatives passed a bill to establish an investigative commission to better understand the events that took place on January 6 of this year. The bill passed with a 252-to-175 vote, with 35 members of the minority party joining all the Representatives in the majority. The future of the commission is uncertain, however, due to certain leaders’ opposition to the bill. 

Supporters of the bill pointed to bipartisan concessions that had been made in the legislation. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, “What is important, and the reason I was willing to — we as a group were willing to — yield on certain points… was that we wanted the American people to have the fullest confidence in the product that [this bill] is.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For members of the Senate to have discernment regarding this bill.
  • For God’s purpose to be accomplished in the investigation. 
  • For leaders of both parties to work together for the good of the nation.
