Huizenga Statement on January 6th Commission Vote
Washington, May 19, 2021
Today, Congressman Bill Huizenga (MI-02) released the following statement after voting against H.R. 3233.
“While the narrative surrounding this commission has been that it will be bipartisan, the fine print tells a different story. Democrats alone would control the process for requesting information from federal agencies as well as selecting key staff positions within the commission. With one party controlling the information as well as senior staff, I don’t believe an objective, non-partisan conclusion can be delivered by the commission as the legislation is currently written. If the Senate were to address these concerns and send amended legislation back to the House, I would give serious consideration to supporting it.”
