Rep. Susan Davis: Congress must support the American people all the way through this crisis
Congresswoman Susan Davis (CA-53) released the following statement on the passage of the HEROES Act, which Davis supported. The legislation includes two election reform bills sponsored by Davis to end restrictions over a dozen states put on voting by mail and to allow voters to track their absentee ballots to ensure they are counted.
“I hear every day from constituents who are frustrated and scared about their economic security. With the Federal Reserve Chair warning of a long and painful economic future, we must act for our communities, workers, and frontline heroes. Congress must support the American people all the way through this crisis.
“We must also ensure safe elections by expanding voting by mail and helping the Postal Service, which this legislation does. This bill provides a critical lifeline to our schools that are struggling to educate our children in this pandemic. We cannot wait and I urge the Senate to take up this legislation right away.”
