The House Committee on House Administration is issuing subpoenas to 15 executive agencies in the Biden regime. These subpoenas relate to constitutional concerns with one of Biden’s executive orders and their implementation by the respective departments.

The executive order in question, titled Promoting Access to Voting, was signed by Biden in March 2021. It calls for executive departments and agencies to partner with state, local, tribal, and territorial election officials to protect and promote the exercise of the right to vote, eliminate discrimination and other barriers to voting, and expand access to voter registration and accurate election information.

However, Senate Republicans have raised concerns and criticized the order, labeling it as a federal “voter mobilization” effort that could have potentially partisan impacts.

Rep. Bryan Steil, the Chairman of the Committee on House Administration, is taking action by subpoenaing Biden’s 15 cabinet secretaries. He aims to obtain their detailed plans for carrying out the executive order, especially given the proximity to the November election.

“The Committee has concerns about the implementation of E.O. 14019, particularly regarding its compatibility with provisions of the National Voter Registration Act (NRA) of 1993,” Steil informed the agencies in a subpoena letter.

Steil emphasizes that Congress delegates specific functions and missions to federal agencies, which they must follow by law. However, he points out that Congress did not include using funds and resources to provide Americans with voter registration materials in their delegation of authority to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Additionally, Steil highlights that E.O. 14019 requires every federal agency to submit a strategic plan outlining how they can promote voter registration and participation. He raises concerns about certain actions taken by agencies in recent months, like the Department of Education’s new federal work-study requirements and the Small Business Administration’s voter registration agreement with Michigan.

To shed light on these issues, Steil reveals that the committee is considering legislation that would repeal E.O. 14019 and require the agencies’ strategic plans to be submitted to Congress.

Included in the list of agencies subpoenaed are the Department of Commerce, Homeland Security, Department of Defense, Justice Department, Department of Education, Department of Energy, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Department of Interior, Department of Labor, Office of Management and Budget, Department of State, Department of Transportation, Treasury Department, and the Department of Agriculture.

In a statement to Fox News, Steil expresses his concerns about the executive order, calling it a “scheme” to carry out “partisan activities” without appropriate funds appropriated by Congress. He asserts that election administration should never be partisan and warns that allowing federal employees from the Biden administration to flood election administration sites could jeopardize election integrity and reduce Americans’ confidence.

“This executive order is another attempt by the Biden administration to tilt the scales ahead of 2024. I will continue working to provide transparency and accountability on this administration’s latest scheme as Congress did not appropriate taxpayer funds for partisan activities.”

This move by Rep. Steil and the House Committee on House Administration occurs after top Republican senators also demanded answers from the Biden regime regarding their “voter mobilization” efforts and claimed they were stonewalled for months by the White House.

In November, Sen. Bill Hagerty, along with 23 senators, sent a letter admonishing President Biden for his administration’s failure to respond to their inquiries about the executive order. These lawmakers reiterated their request for information on how federal agencies planned to carry out the order and even asked for copies of the plans submitted to the White House.

Furthermore, an April lawsuit challenging the executive order alleges that it specifically targets key demographics to benefit the president’s political party and his own re-election.

Tarren Bragdon, President and CEO of the Foundation for Government Accountability, offered his perspective on the matter. His organization has filed an amicus brief in a case that is now pending before the Supreme Court. Bragdon commented, “It’s no wonder Team Biden is using their authority and resources to target welfare populations with a federally funded get-out-the-vote effort.”

This latest development showcases the growing concern among conservatives about the potential partisan implications and constitutionality of Biden’s executive order on voting access. It highlights the GOP’s commitment to ensuring fair elections and upholding the integrity of the democratic process.
