Kelly: Democrats' 'For the People' Act a Washington Power Grab that Undermines Election Security and the First Amendment

Mar 3, 2021

Washington, D.C. - This evening the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 1, the For the People Act. U.S. Representative Mike Kelly (R-Pa.) voted against the legislation and released this statement:

"At a time when Americans are urging their elected leaders to strengthen ballot integrity and restore trust in our voting systems, Nancy Pelosi is pushing legislation that centralizes control of elections in Washington D.C., allows for California-style ballot harvesting, uses taxpayer money for political campaigns, and undermines the First Amendment. This bill is for politicians, not the people."
