Nugent Hatch Act Proposal Passes House and Senate Unanimously

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Following unanimous House passage of the Hatch Act Modernization Act, Rep. Rich Nugent (FL-05) issued the following statement:

"At a time when it seems like Washington really struggles to come together to get anything done, it is a really encouraging sign that we can still put ideas out there that can find unanimous support. I was honored to work with the Florida Sheriff's Association and others to pass long overdue legislation to modernize the Hatch Act.

"The Hatch Act Modernization Act, which includes the entirety of my own legislation, allows qualified local, state, and federal employees to serve their respective communities. Currently, the Hatch Act is used largely as a political weapon in local elections and it intimidates and bars otherwise qualified local and state employees from seeking higher office simply because their position. This legislation takes an important step toward addressing that problem and I'm proud to see it headed to the President's desk. He should sign it into law right away."
