“Thank you Senate Majority Leader Schumer and all the Democratic Senators who voted to move the For the People Act forward to debate. The environmental community understands just how important it is to strengthen our democracy with common-sense reforms that are popular across the aisle, from expanded access to the polls to election security to getting money out of politics. We know that with a healthy and thriving democracy, we can make progress protecting our environment, combating climate change and ensuring everyone has clean air to breathe and water to drink. Our environment and our communities win when our democracy works for the people.”
