Washington, D.C. — Today, Senator Ted Budd (R-NC) introduced the Promoting Free and Fair Elections Act. He was joined by Senators Mike Lee (R-UT), Bill Hagerty (R-TN), Deb Fischer (R-NE), Mike Braun (R-IN), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), and Roger Marshall (R-KS).

The bill would prohibit federal agencies from using taxpayer funds to implement or enter into agreements with partisan organizations that conduct voter mobilization activities.

Sen. Budd said in a statement:

“The federal government and its millions of employees should not be using official resources to advance partisan politics. President Biden’s executive order empowering every federal agency to engage in electioneering on the taxpayers’ dime raises serious ethical and legal concerns. This sweeping directive is inherently political and directed primarily at groups expected to vote for one party over another.”
