On Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said that he would set a vote for next Wednesday to begin debate on a measure regarding election laws.
“We cannot allow conservative-controlled states to double down on their regressive and subversive voting bills,” Schumer said in a letter. “The Freedom to Vote Act is the legislation that will right the ship of our democracy and establish common sense national standards to give fair access to our democracy to all Americans.”
As The New York Times reported:
In his letter, Mr. Schumer said that Democrats would also continue their internal negotiations to come up with a final version of a sweeping social safety net bill that has been slowed by differences between progressives and moderates over its cost and contents.
