House Passes Transformational Democracy Reform Legislation
Today, Congresswoman Suzan DelBene (WA-01) released the following statement on the passage of the For The People Act (H.R. 1) in the House of Representatives:
“Our responsibility as members of Congress is to ensure that the American people have trust in our democratic process and equitable access to the ballot box. This historic pro-democracy reform bill will curb the influence of dark money in campaign finance, hold our elected officials to a higher standard, and implement crucial voting rights protections. With state legislatures spearheading anti-democratic voter suppression laws and partisan redistricting efforts, we need to pass this legislation immediately. I call on my colleagues in the Senate to take up this measure and help restore faith in our government.”
