Legislation prohibiting states from “misusing” the 14th Amendment to receive federal funds for election administration is expected to be introduced by Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.).

The Colorado Supreme Court ruled on the same day that former President Trump was removed from the Republican primary ballot in Colorado under section three of the Fourteenth Amendment, and this bill was introduced by Tillis.

“Regardless of whether you support or oppose former President Donald Trump, it is outrageous to see left-wing activists make a mockery of our political system by scheming with partisan state officials and pressuring judges to remove him from the ballot,” Tillis said in a press release.

The purpose of the bill is to amend the Help America Vote Act of 2002 by inserting language stating that claims deriving from section 3 of the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution are exclusively within the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court.d

Republican legislators who opposed Tillis vehemently criticized the decision rendered by the Colorado Supreme Court thereafter.
