House Resolution 1 (HR 1), the For the People Bill, far too long time in coming, is arousing heated controversy in Congress, having been discussed by two committees so far, the most recent one aired by C-SPAN last night, featuring an impassioned but brief speech by Reg. Elijah Cummings, Chair of the House Oversight Committee: “Voting is crucial, and I don’t give a damn how you look at it,” Cummings said, voice booming. “There are efforts to stop people from voting. That’s not right," he said. He said that his mother's last words were a request to keep fighting for the vote for all. Courthouse News reported similar debate last week by the House Judiciary Committee, "Election Reform Bill Fought Tooth-and-Nail by House Republicans" (January 29).
