Washington, DC – Today, Representative John Curtis (R-UT) released the following statement after voting against H.R. 1, legislation designed to fund, elect, and maintain the Democratic majority.

“H.R. 1 is a solution in search of a problem. Election integrity and access is critical, but cannot and should not be managed in a one-size-fits-all, centralized federal government program,” said Curtis. “Not only is it likely unconstitutional, but I believe it is undemocratic and fundamentally un-American in the way it attempts to control free speech, the political process, and the way we engage in civic participation. Our election systems may be in need of improvements, but this bill is not the solution.”
