In an opinion column on FoxNews.com, Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow at The Heritage Foundation, a former commissioner on the Federal Election Commission (FEC), and also the former counsel to the assistant attorney general for civil rights at the U.S. Justice Department, described H.R. 1 and its devastating impacts.
"H.R. 1, the deceptively entitled 'For the People Act,' has arrived in the U.S. Senate after a party-line vote in the House of Representatives. It is without doubt the most dangerous and irresponsible election bill I have ever seen.
"If it becomes law, it will interfere with the ability of states and their citizens to determine the qualifications and eligibility of voters, to ensure the accuracy and validity of voter registration rolls, to secure the integrity of elections, and to participate and speak freely in the political arena.
"H.R. 1 is an 800-page monstrosity that would usurp the role of the states. It would not only eliminate basic safety protocols, but mandate new, reckless rules and procedures."
See the interview and read his entire column, where he describes the "eight worst provisions of this ill-considered bill."
The bill can be read in its entirety here.
The bill is now under consideration in the Senate after passing the House on March 3, 2021.
CALL YOUR SENATORS NOW!
We need to keep the pressure on the Senate to reject this bill! Please call our Senators from North Carolina NOW to stop the passage of H.R. 1 before it's too late. It is critical for all of us to make these calls immediately.
Senator Burr 202-224-3154
