The House should make permanent the option to electronically submit committee reports.
A pilot program to allow committees to electronically submit committee reports was put into place in May 2020 via H.Res. 965. The program was intended to be temporary, in response to the COVID-19 telework requirements. But because the electronic submission of committee reports has been shown to make committee work more efficient, accessible, and transparent, the Committee recommends that the House make the pilot program permanent. While committees would not be required to submit reports electronically, all committees should have the option to do so, regardless of whether the committee is teleworking or working in person.
