Expand the use of digital signatures for a majority of House business, including constituent communications.

The Committee previously passed a recommendation to allow Members to electronically add or remove their name as a bill cosponsor, thereby updating a cumbersome process. This technology should be expanded to allow digital signatures on other documents to increase efficiency, and to allow Members to designate a staff Member who can approve use of a Member’s digital signature.

Additionally, the House should support the Committee on House Administration’s efforts to create a centralized website for the online submission and acceptance of digital signatures.
