On Friday, the House of Representatives voted to approve H.R. 1, also known as the For the People Act. “H.R. 1 is an attempt to federalize and micromanage the election process and impose unnecessary, unwise and in some cases unconstitutional mandates on the states,” said Heritage election integrity expert Hans A. von Spakovsky.
In January, Hans unpacked the harmful elements of H.R. 1 before the House Committee on the Judiciary, explaining how the bill would interfere with the states’ constitutional right to manage their own voting systems, protect incumbent office holders by transforming campaign finance rules, create an environment ripe for voter fraud, among other problems. The bill will now go to the Senate.
