“Goodlatte: Voting Rights Act remains strong without amendment”

“The congressman affirmed his opposition to those who say the law is now insufficient.”


“The fact of the matter is we have a Voting Rights Act; it is very strong,” [U.S. Rep. Bob] Goodlatte, R-Roanoke County, said… “There are still strong protections under the Voting Rights Act, including the ability of a judge to order that a community or even a whole state be placed under the preclearance requirements if there are new evidences of discrimination,” he said.
