Vt. US Sen. Leahy to seek answers to Voting Rights

Vt. US Sen. Leahy to seek answers to Voting Rights (AP) — Vermont U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy says he will call hearings of the Senate Judiciary Committee to see if legislation can be written to protect minority voting rights that many feel were threatened after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the Voting Rights Act. Last week the U.S. Supreme Court issued a decision that effectively halted enforcement of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which has protected minority voting rights by requiring federal approval for changes to state and local voting procedures in some states and smaller jurisdictions.
