group in the House of Representatives managed to stage a revolt within the
Republican Party and have the Voting Rights Act Reauthorization (H.R. 9)
pulled from the House floor.
We cannot let this small band of ultra-conservative House Republicans
succeed in holding up reauthorization of this landmark civil rights
legislation. That's why People For the American Way has launched an
emergency petition to tell House Leadership to pass the bill immediately.
Please sign the petition now to tell Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert and
Majority Leader John Boehner to stand up to the right wing's stalling
tactics and let the VRA bill pass before the Fourth of July holiday recess!
