Poll Suggests Representatives Must Read Bills Before Voting on Them


Voters overwhelmingly support a Republican congresswoman’s demand for roll call votes in the House of Representatives, and also believe members of Congress should read the bills they pass into law. Details from Congressional Correspondent Bernie Bennett.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 89% of Likely U.S. voters believe the votes for passing bills in Congress should be recorded on roll calls, with every member on the record as voting yes or no.

Eighty-one percent (81%) of voters also believe members of Congress should be required to read every word of a bill prior to voting on it, while just 11% disagree.

Georgia Republican Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene this year introduced the Congressional Voting Accountability Act to require roll call votes on legislation in the House.
