The House of Representatives voted to pass a bill on Wednesday that will set up a commission-style to investigates the origins of the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, Axios reports.
While House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and other GOP leadership opposed the creation of the commission, but 35 Republicans voted for the bill, pushing it through with a 252-175 vote.
As Axios points out, the strong Republican support for the bill will make it harder for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to frame the effort as partisan.
Ten GOP senators are needed for the proposal to pass.
The creation of the commission has been delayed for months because Republicans have insisted its scope should be expanded to include violence by far-left protesters last summer after the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
