Discusses his efforts to enact a sweeping package of reforms that will fight corruption, fix our broken politics, and make government work for all Americans.
Senator Udall, NM Rep. Linda Trujillo; NM Rep. Moe Maestas; Paul Stokes, PDACNM; Max Feldman, Counsel in the Democracy Program at the Brennan Center for Justice; Judy Williams, President NM League of Women Voters; Laurie Weahkee; Exec. Dir. Native American Voters Alliance.
“The For the People Act is a sweeping package of pro-democracy reforms that aims to make it easier, not harder, to vote; end the dominance of big money in politics; and ensure that public officials work for the public interest. The bill serves as Senate companion legislation to H.R. 1 in the U.S. House of Representatives, which passed the House in March of this year. It builds off of Udall’s We the People Democracy Reform Act of 2017, which was introduced in the 115th Congress as a comprehensive reform package encompassing a number of bills championed by Udall and others to address various shortcomings in our political system, and strengthen and revitalize our democracy.” Press Release May 11
PDACNM applauds the Senator for taking bold steps to save our Democracy when it would be easy for him to sit back and relax now that he is no longer a candidate. Instead, he is motivated to do the people’s work as energetically as ever. Let’s support and promote this very important and comprehensive bill.
