“I have been critical of the House not holding a vote to authorize the inquiry but the House determines its own procedures,” Collins said. “Just as I don’t like it when House members try to tell us to abolish the filibuster I’m not sure it’s productive for the Senate to try to dictate to the House how to conduct the inquiry.”
In addition to Collins, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) have not co-sponsored Graham’s resolution.
