Campaign Legal Center (CLC) fact checks a mass email claiming that the For the People Act, H.R. 1 will use taxpayer money to pay members of Congress a, “second salary worth as much as $600,000 per year (based on CBO estimates).” This claim is a complete fiction.
On Feb. 23, 2021, former Federal Election Commission (FEC) commissioners Trevor Potter and Ann Ravel sent a letter to congressional leaders expressing their support for the FEC reform provisions in the For the People Act, H.R. 1/S. 1.
On Feb. 22, 2021, Campaign Legal Center (CLC) sent a letter to New York's speaker of the State Assembly, Senate majority leader, and governor in support of a bill that would automatically restore voting rights for all New Yorkers with felony convictions upon their release from prison. This milestone legislation would reenfranchise tens of thousands of New Yorkers, streamline the rights restoration process, require state and local officials to provide formerly incarcerated individuals notice of their voting rights restoration upon release and cement New York’s commitment to rights restoration immediately upon release from incarceration, a policy which currently could be unilaterally reversed by a future governor’s office.
