In letter to Speaker Pelosi, ECU expresses strong support for the bill
ECU organized a letter in October, signed by three-quarters of the incoming freshman class, demanding reform be the first item on the agenda in the 116th Congress
WASHINGTON, D.C. — End Citizens United Action Fund today sent a letter to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Representative John Sarbanes in support of the For the People Act (H.R.1). ECU Action Fund has played a pivotal role in harnessing the power of its four million members to pressure Congress to pass campaign finance reform legislation.
The letter reads:
The For the People Act is borne out of the 2018 midterm elections that saw a majority of Democrats run on a platform of cleaning up corruption and unrigging the system in Washington. The comprehensive bill will restore voting rights, safeguard the integrity of elections, reform ethics laws, and end the dominance of big money in politics. In October, ECU organized a letter, signed by three-quarters of the incoming class, demanding reform be the first item on the agenda in the new Congress. A post-election poll commissioned by ECU found that 75 percent of 2018 voters in battleground House districts said cracking down on Washington corruption was their top priority.
