Jackson, Jr. Introduces Right to Vote Amendment in the House
Jackson said, "I first introduced the Voting Rights Amendment
on November 6, 2001... During the entire 107th Congress the bill had
zero co-sponsors. It was re-introduced in the 108th Congress - with no
original co-sponsors - and after two years of hard work 45 members
signed on as co-sponsors. The fact that we have 54 original co-sponsors
in the 109th Congress shows that the idea of adding a Voting Rights
Amendment to the Constitution is growing by leaps and bounds."
