WASHINGTON — Today, United States Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux (GA-07) released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold a set of restrictive Arizona voting laws.
“Today’s Supreme Court ruling sets a dangerous precedent for places like Georgia where access to the ballot is being threatened by similar laws that have a disproportionate impact on Black and minority communities. This court decision chips away at the Voting Rights Act, underscoring the urgent need to pass equitable and comprehensive voting rights legislation,” said Congresswoman Bourdeaux.
Rep. Carolyn Bourdeaux lives with her family in Suwanee, Georgia and represents Georgia’s 7th Congressional District in the 117th Congress. Carolyn is a strong advocate for affordable health care, an economic recovery that puts workers and small businesses first, and investing in her district’s world-class public education system and transportation infrastructure.
Georgia’s fast-changing 7th Congressional District includes portions of the northeast Atlanta metropolitan area, including portions of Forsyth and Gwinnett counties and cities Peachtree Corners, Berkeley Lake, Sugar Hill, Norcross, Cumming, Lawrenceville, Duluth, Snellville, Lilburn, Suwanee, Grayson, and Buford.
