Status: The bill passed along party lines in March 2019 but did not pass the Senate given the Republican majority.

Description

This comprehensive legislative package contains numerous provisions to expand voting access, address gerrymandering, and regulate political spending. Among provisions that would tackle digital deception, the bill would apply existing advertising disclosure requirements to digital media; restructure the Federal Election Commission so that it is better able to enforce campaign finance law; and enable the Internal Revenue Service to better track dark money. This bill was the incoming Democratic majority’s first priority in the House in 2019.
