Texas Rep. Veasey: Let's act on Voting Rights Act
from Fort Worth Star Telegram
To Rep. Marc Veasey, D-Texas, the Voting Rights Act is personal. A former African-American state lawmaker who was elected to Congress in 2012, Veasey was able to compete in a district newly drawn for minority representation in North Texas. But since the Supreme Court struck down key provisions of the Voting Rights Act in 2013, Veasey has been concerned about its future. To urge Congress to rewrite and update the law, on Tuesday he's announcing that he's creating the Congressional Voting Rights Caucus.
