WASHINGTON — Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-2), a member of the Democracy Reform Task Force, released the following statement on the unveiling of H.R. 1, the For the People Act, a package of legislation on voting rights, campaign finance and ethics reforms.

“I’ve heard from many Granite Staters that they are tired of the status quo and want real reforms that make Congress work for the people. That’s why my colleagues and I have unveiled H.R. 1, the For the People Act, a bold new agenda to make government more transparent and accountable.

This package will make it easier—not harder—to vote, help get dark money out of politics, level the playing field for all Americans, and hold public officials more accountable.

These are not partisan issues and I’m hopeful that we can build bipartisan support for this legislation. I’m excited to announce these proposals, and I look forward to working with my colleagues on the Democracy Reform Task Force to enact meaningful change for the American people.”
