Diaz-Balart: H.R.4 Grotesquely Disguised as the Voting Rights Act

Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) issued the following statement regarding today’s passage of H.R. 4, the “Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2019.”

“In 2006, I proudly voted for the permanent extension of the original Voting Rights Act, which already prohibits voter discrimination on the basis of race or sex, and allows federal judges to take the necessary measures against jurisdictions who violate this law. The bill brought forth by Democratic Leadership today is not a reauthorization, as it’s already law. Instead, it’s the federal takeover of local elections. This highly partisan legislation, grotesquely disguised as the Voting Rights Act, would give federal bureaucrats control over state and local elections. Once again, Democratic Leadership is focused on phony bills instead of reaching across the aisle to obtain real solutions for the American people.”
