Congress Must Act to Protect ALL Provisions of the Voting Rights Act
Congressman Chakah Fattah (D-PA) Responds to SCOTUS Ruling on Voting Rights
WASHINGTON, June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "The Supreme Court's decision represents the ruling of our nation's highest judicial authority and the law of the land. For the record, I join with those who strongly disagree with today's ruling. Although we must adhere to the Court's decision, the justices have made it perfectly clear that Congress has a significant role to play in updating and protecting the provisions of this important legislation. Absent the Voting Rights Act, the America we enjoy today would be non-existent. I will work with my colleagues to ensure that we update the Voting Rights Act and fully protect the right to vote."
