The bill, passed with a vote of 216 to 192, saw support from 213 Republicans.
It prevents any pilot programs for a CBDC before they are proposed and restricts the Federal Reserve and the Department of Treasury from issuing a CBDC without Congressional approval.
Additionally, the bill ensures that the Fed cannot issue a retail digital currency that could be used for citizen surveillance.
Majority Whip Emmer emphasized that the bill is a response to the current administration's lack of clarity and guidance on digital assets, arguing that an improperly managed CBDC could significantly impact American lives.
