Legal professionals testified at a House Administration Committee hearing on the Independent State Legislature (ISL) theory, an interpretation of the Constitution that limits states' authority of elections to their legislatures.

The Supreme Court is expected to hear a case in October 2022, Moore v. Harper, which deals with ISL theory. close
