Senator Serrano Joins U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and other Elected Officials Urging Congress to Restore the Protections of the Voting Rights Act

(South Bronx, NY) - Senator José M. Serrano joined U.S Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr., Congressman José E. Serrano, and other elected officials at the Bronx County Courthouse urging Congress to restore the protections of the Voting Rights Act. This past June, key provisions of the Voting Rights Act were gutted by the Supreme Court's decision to strike down Section 4(b) of the Act. This section of the law was used in determining which states and counties required close federal monitoring to help prevent suppression of minority voting.
