Reform the Insurrection Act
This week, the Brennan Center submitted a proposal to the January 6 committee on ways to reform the Insurrection Act, which allows the president to deploy the military domestically to quell civil unrest or enforce the law in a crisis.
The dangerously vague and outdated law is ripe for abuse by a future president. Congress must update the law so that it guards against power grabs while preserving the ability to deploy troops in a true crisis.
