ALG Praises Arizona lawmakers for standing strong for election integrity

Arizona first in the nation to formally oppose Pelosi’s vote rigging bill in Congress

Fairfax, Va. – Arizona has become the first state in the nation to formally oppose HR1/S1, Nancy Pelosi’s vote rigging bill.   In addition, Arizona is the first legislature to pass a ban on private funding of the administration of elections, something Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg did in 2020 through the Center for Technology and Civic Life.

Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning issued the following statement today in support of both Houses of the Arizona State Legislature passing  HB2569 and HCR2023.

“Americans for Limited Government applauds Arizona lawmakers for their bold action to protect election integrity. After the widespread voter fraud in last November’s presidential election, it is vitally important that we improve election security to restore faith in our elections moving forward.

“By denouncing HR 1, Nancy Pelosi’s Democrat vote-rigging bill, Arizona lawmakers are sending Congress a clear message that the state will not sanction election fraud.

“State Rep. Jake Hoffman (R-Queen Creek) deserves special praise for spearheading this action, which we hope will serve as a model for legislators around the country.”

House Concurrent Resolution 2023 opposing HR1/S1 does not need the governor’s signature. Lawmakers will send a copy immediately to Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), Sen.  Mark Kelly (D-AZ), all members of the Arizona congressional delegation, and all speakers/presidents of the other 49 legislatures.

HB2569 now heads to the governor. The governor has 5 days to sign or veto the legislation. If he takes no action it becomes law at the end of the 5-day period.

HB 2569: Prohibits private funding of elections activities.

HCR 2023: A concurrent resolution opposing HR1 in the US Congress.
