Statement by Congressman Kim on the Passage of H.R. 1

 

WASHINGTON, DC – The following is a statement from Congressman Andy Kim (NJ-03) on the passage of H.R. 1:

 

“Today’s vote is a victory for the voice of the American people. It’s a defeat for dark money and special interests. H.R. 1 is a massive step forward in truly making our democracy for the people. I call on the Senate to take up this bill and answer the call of our constituents, Democrats and Republicans alike, to restore power back to the people and deliver the government they deserve.”

 

Congressman Kim is a co-sponsor of H.R. 1, and authored an amendment to the legislation that was unanimously passed on the House floor.

 

Earlier this week, Congressman Kim introduced the Alice Paul Voter Protection Act, which would protect efforts to register people to vote.
