Washington, D.C. - Congressman Jim Costa (CA-16) released the following statement following the passage of H.R.1, The For The People Act:

It’s time to change many of the influences that can corrupt the lawmaking process in Washington. We have a government -- as President Lincoln described -- of the people, by the people, and for the people. H.R.1 restores the voice of the American people by making it easier to vote and makes our democracy stronger by making our institutions more inclusive, ethical, transparent and accountable.
