COLLINS: “VOIDING SECTION 4 A WIN FOR ALL AMERICANS”

Georgia rep. thrilled to finally see equality among states becoming a reality

WASHINGTON, D.C. –Congressman Doug Collins (R-GA) has released a statement after learning of the Supreme Court’s decision to void Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965:

“Today’s decision by the Supreme Court gives equality to every American in the way we elect our leaders and civil servants,” said Collins. “That’s exciting news for our country, and something I am very proud to finally see take place. Coming from one of the 15 states that has been impacted by this provision of the 1965 legislation for almost half a century, today’s landmark ruling is encouraging and uplifting for the future changes Congress can make to ensure fairness to every single person who comes to the polls on election day to take part in our electoral process. But this morning’s news does not mean our fight for voting equality is done. Even in the divisive times we find ourselves in right now, Congress must find a way to come together, make smart decisions for the wellbeing of our citizenry, and rework the current formula to get it right. We call ourselves the freest country in the world, well it is time to start acting like it and put our own people before the politics.”
