HARRISBURG – State Rep. Seth Grove (R-York) was the representative of state government in our country to travel to Washington DC Wednesday and participate in a congressional roundtable discussion that examined election integrity.
Grove, who serves as majority chairman of the Pennsylvania House State Government Committee, issued the following statement at the conclusion of the exchange of information:
“It is truly an honor and privilege to have been invited to take part in a high-level national discussion dealing with an issue that is so critical to our country. My colleagues on the State Government Committee and I have been at the forefront of the effort to study our election process, evaluate its weaknesses and strengths and restore integrity to it while ensuring openness, transparency and fairness to every Pennsylvanian who wishes to fully participate in democracy on Election Day.
“I applaud Illinois Congressman Rodney Davis, ranking member of the Committee on House Administration, for leading today’s discussion. He is also spearheading the national effort to put in place election reforms by authoring the American Confidence in Elections (ACE) Act, which supplies individual states with tools they need to boost election integrity and remove outdated federal policies that get in their way. His legislation works hand in hand with corresponding model state legislation such as the Pennsylvania Voting Rights Protection Act which I’ve authored and helps each state in its effort to improve election integrity without the use of burdensome mandates.”
