WASHINGTON, D.C.— Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02) today cosponsored H.R. 1, the For The People Act, a bill to return power back to the people.

“I am proud to cosponsor this historic bill. H.R. 1 will move to end corruption, strengthen democracy and voting rights and get dark money out of politics. This long-overdue legislation will restore faith in government,” Larsen said. “I am also happy the bill includes legislation I introduced, the America Votes Act, to allow voters arriving at polls without the identification required by their state to submit a sworn, written statement affirming their identity, as we do in Washington state. I look forward to the House passing this bill and setting an agenda that works better for people of the Second District.”
