It won't apply to her, but outgoing Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo is proposing a series of rules changes to provide more voting rights for territorial delegates in the upcoming 116th Congress.
In testimony before the House Rules Committee, Bordallo sought to restore certain floor privileges they previously held. Her office released her previous testimony in 2016 on one of the key proposed changes.
Bordallo stated, "Permitting the delegates to cast non-decisive votes in the committee of the whole would not lessen the representation of the 435 members from the fifty states, rather it would allow the 4.5 million Americans who call the territories and DC home to know where their only elected members to congress stand on these issues."
Bordallo is also proposing the adoption of new privileges such as allowing territorial delegates to vote for the Speaker of the House.
She says she has the support of all other territorial delegates as well as the resident commissioner from Puerto Rico.
