Jun 17, 2021

End Citizens United (ECU) and Let America Vote (LAV) Action Fund President Tiffany Muller released the following statement on Senator Joe Manchin’s willingness to negotiate on the For the People Act (S.1/H.R.1):

“As Senator Joe Manchin said from the very beginning, ‘inaction is not an option’ on protecting Americans’ fundamental freedom to vote. We know that Senator Manchin cares deeply about protecting our democracy and limiting the influence of special interests, and this will continue to be an on-going negotiation. Senator Manchin’s proposal is a big first step and moves us closer to moving the bill forward. At the end of the day, we are confident that the entire Democratic Caucus will get behind this bill because the American people are behind it and our democracy demands it. Momentum is on our side.”
