US Senators introduce legislation to make the government work for the people

U.S. Senators, including Tim Kaine and Mark Warner, introduced a package of legislation that would make the government work for the people. In total, 45 senators introduced For the People Act. It aims to restore the promise of American democracy by making it easier, not harder, to vote; ending the dominance of big money in politics; and ensuring that public officials work for the public interest. Earlier this month, the U.S. House passed its companion legislation by a vote of 234 to 193. “Our nation belongs to the people not just the wealthy or the powerful people but all the people,” said Warner. “I’m proud this legislation includes the Honest Ads Act, a bill I introduced to bring overdue transparency and accountability to online political ads. By facilitating access to the ballot box, addressing the influence of money in politics, and ensuring that lawmakers can be held accountable by those they serve, this bold legislation will strengthen democracy and put power back in the hands of everyday Americans.”
