H.R. 4, Pelosi's Next Elections Power Grab, Introduced by House Democrats

On Tuesday, House Democrats introduced Nancy Pelosi's next elections power grab, H.R. 4.

Jason Snead, Executive Director of Honest Elections Project Action, remarked:

H.R. 4 is markedly worse than the original version. The bill’s authors had many opportunities to make it constitutional or bipartisan, but at each opportunity, they sprinted in the other direction. This bill is a federal power grab and a gift to partisan, frivolous litigators who will use it to manipulate state laws and throw all federal elections into chaos, further undermining voter confidence in fair and accurate elections.

The full text of H.R. 4 can be read here.

As the Lawyers Democracy Fund Points out, H.R. 4 is a direct response the Supreme Court's recent decision in Brnovich.

H.R. 4 would also remake how the courts would handle election law disputes.

Also of concern, H.R. 4 would give the Department of Justice unprecedented power to unilaterally strike down state election reforms.

H.R. 4 is expected to be voted on in the coming weeks. Democrats have been laying the foundation to introduce the legislation for months with a series of hearings once H.R. 1, the "Corrupt Politicians Act," failed to earn bipartisan support.

H.R. 4 is another partisan power grab by Democrats to federalize elections and should be opposed.
