The Stable Genius Act is a proposed Act of Congress unveiled on 9 January 2018, by Rep. Brendan Boyle (D–PA–13) to require presidential candidates to have a medical exam and publicly disclose the results before the general election. The name of the act is a backronym for the Standardizing Testing and Accountability Before Large Elections Giving Electors Necessary Information for Unobstructed Selection Act but most likely is a reference to a two-part tweet sent by President Donald Trump referring to himself as a "stable genius". The Hill expected Boyle to propose the legislation to the United States Congress on 9 January.
Boyle introduced the legislation on 9 January 2018.
