House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) and Oversight Committee Republicans are requesting from the White House "documents and communications related to the creation and implementation" of President Biden's executive order on "Promoting Access to Voting."

The committee is probing the constitutionality of the order.

In a letter to Office of Management and Budget Director Shalanda Young, the group wrote that they "have concerns about the lack of constitutional and statutory authority for federal agencies to engage in any activity outside the agency’s authorized mission, including federal voting access and registration activities."

The lawmakers said their "concern has been exacerbated by the continued lack of transparency from federal agencies and the White House regarding the implementation of this executive order."
