U.S. Rep. Jim McGovern Statement on Shelby County v. Holder

Statement

"I am extremely disappointed by the Supreme Court's decision in the Shelby County v. Holder voting rights case,which struck down the coverage formula that determines which jurisdictions must clear their voting laws with the federal government. Since 1965, the landmark Voting Rights Act has provided important voter protections against racial discrimination. Congress mustupdate the coverage formula and ensure that we continue our efforts to protect voters and eliminate discrimination at the ballot box."
