SB 853 - This act adopts an agreement to elect the president by popular vote.
Under the act, each participating state will award its electoral votes to the presidential candidate who receives the majority of the popular vote in all of the states and the District of Columbia. The compact only becomes effective when it is enacted by states that collectively hold a majority of the electoral votes. The agreement terminates when the electoral college is abolished.
This act is identical to HB 289 (2007), and SB 565 (2007).
