In September 2020, House Democrats introduced the Protecting Our Democracy Act – a landmark reforms package that will prevent future presidential abuses, restore our system of checks and balances, strengthen accountability and transparency, and protect our elections.

Included in these reforms is Chairman Yarmuth’s Congressional Power of the Purse Act, which will reassert Congress’ Article I spending authorities and safeguard our nation’s separation of powers.
