RM Rep. Rodney Davis commends Florida & Governor Ron DeSantis for their proactive approach to election integrity, including improving list maintenance, requiring voter ID, banning Zuckerbucks, and establishing the Office of Election Crimes and Security.

Democrats aren’t celebrating the historic voter turnout from the 2018 midterm elections - the highest in 4 decades, especially among minority voters. We should celebrate the good work the Voting Rights Act is doing! H.R. 4 that will be voted on in the House today is NOT reauthorizing the Voting Rights Act - VRA is still protecting voters today! H.R. 4 is the Democrats giving more power to the federal government.
With a unanimous vote, the House passed H.R. 4924 and H.Res. 724, Congressional Accountability Act Reform measures. These measures are the result of a bipartisan and comprehensive review of the training, policies, and mechanisms related to harassment and discrimination. Chairman Gregg Harper and Ranking Member Robert Brady spoke in support of these measures on the House Floor.
