Republican Leader of the Education and Labor Committee Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) sent a letter to Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) Chair Charlotte Burrows urging her to reinstate the EEOC’s practice of making members’ voting records public.

In the letter, Foxx writes:“Since President Biden designated you as EEOC chair on January 20, 2021, the agency has not posted information online or otherwise made public either matters receiving a Commission vote or the voting records of individual commissioners.”She continues:“As a Member of Congress, every vote I take in committees and on the House Floor is recorded and quickly posted online for all to see…There is no reason for the Commission to hide its votes from the public, who commissioners were appointed to serve, and it is troubling that you have chosen not to make public any votes the Commission has taken under your chairmanship.”
