Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Kim Schrier, M.D. (WA-08) released the following statement after voting for H.R. 1, the For The People Act:

“I was thrilled to vote to pass H.R.1 today. The For The People Act will end the dominance of big money and special interests in politics and elevate the voices and priorities of every day Americans. It will make it easier to vote and put the government back in the hands of the American people, where it has always belonged. And it will make sure that public servants actually serve the public.

The people of the 8th district made it clear that we want government to work for us. Today we took a big step towards that goal.”
