Congressman Sarbanes: HR 1 Would Help Restore The Promise of Our Democracy (Op-Ed)

Congressman John Sarbanes, one of the original sponsors of HR 1, writes that the legislation is “a bold and transformative reform bill that will return power to the people by making it easier, not harder, to vote; breaking the grip of big money on our politics; and strengthening ethics laws so that the public officials serve the public, not themselves.” Regarding campaign finance reform, HR 1 includes a bill to create a small donor public financing system that will “empower[] the American people to take back their democracy from wealthy and well-connected special interests.”
