Rep. Bourdeaux Statement On Signing Of SB 202

WASHINGTON — Today, United States Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux (GA-07) released the following statement after Governor Kemp signed SB 202, a bill that significantly curtails voting rights, into law: 

“This is a dark day for Georgia,” said Congresswoman Bourdeaux. “SB 202 is, quite simply, a bad piece of partisan legislation, designed to make it harder for Georgians to vote. It was Republicans who, in 2005, implemented no-excuse absentee voting in our state. Now, after a year where we saw record-breaking turnout, they’re trying to change the rules, simply because they lost an election. It’s wrong, and yet another reason why we need to pass the For The People Act immediately.”
