Expresses the opposition of the members of the Legislature to any attempt of the federal government to usurp the legislative authority over the control and administration of elections.


The United States (U.S.) Constitution provides for the power of each state by the Legislature to prescribe the times, places and manner of holding elections for senators and representatives, but Congress may at any time make or alter such regulations by law (U.S. Const. Art. I, Section 4).

H.R. 1 is an act by Congress that is cited as the For the People Act of 2021.  This Act is divided into three different sections with various specifications and requirements within each section.  The three different sections are Voting, Campaign Finance and Ethics (H.R. 1).
