Seeks to eliminate dark money in politics, makes it easier for Americans to exercise their right to vote, ends the process of partisan redistricting nationwide, and imposes new, higher standards of ethics.
Democrats pledged to use the House Majority to renew faith in government by increasing transparency, accountability, and ethics standards for Congress and the executive branch. With the passage on March 8 of H.R. 1, the For the People Act, the Democratic-led House kept that promise and took a major step forward to make government work for the people again. This legislation would make it easier for Americans to exercise their right to vote, address the corrosive influence of dark money in our politics, institute national redistricting reform, and establish higher ethical and transparency standards for public officials. House Democrats will continue taking steps to root out corruption and restore the American people’s confidence that their government can be a force for good in their lives, helping make opportunities more accessible and responding to the needs of our citizens in a timely and effective manner. The For the People Act, H.R. 1, is just the beginning.
