The House of Representatives passed the John Lewis Voting Rights Act on party lines. Its fate in the Senate is uncertain since the split there is more fluid on the issue.

After the vote, Representative Jody Hice stated that the bill was “horrendous” due to the way it would reshape U.S. election law.

The congressman from Georgia said, “It’s one thing to talk about voter fraud and to do away with as much as possible fraud. It’s another thing to talk about voter suppression… the notion that voter suppression is widespread across the country is just absolutely a false narrative. What we want is the maximum number of people to vote to have as little fraud and cheating as possible— that’s right.”

Representative Hice voiced concern that, since the new administration was installed, ”there’s not been one single major decision made that’s been in the best interests of our country.” He expressed the belief that the majority party is trying to distract the public from the policies they are implementing.
