Lawmakers Respond To Democracy Spring Protests With Call For Democracy Hearings
Almost 100 lawmakers are asking for hearings on five bills.
"The recent Democracy Spring protests in which 1,400 activists were arrested this month have prompted nearly 100 members of Congress to call for hearings on voting rights and campaign finance reform legislation."
"asking them to hold hearings on five pieces of legislation: the Voter Empowerment Act, Government By The People Act, Democracy for All Amendment, Automatic Voter Registration Act and Voting Rights Advancement Act. The measures are intended to create a public financing system for congressional elections, overturn Citizens United v. FEC and other campaign finance-related court decisions, and expand voting rights."http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/democracy-spring-letter-legislation_us_571930d3e4b0d912d5fe034d
