Now there are 24 co-sponsors for the Voting Rights Amendment Act

The Voting Rights Amendment Act, a proposed bill to restore an updated preclearance regime for new voting laws in certain (mostly Southern) states and smaller jurisdictions after Shelby County v. Holder, hasn't seen much since it was introduced in January. But last week, it added two new co-sponsors: Frank LoBiondo (R-NJ) and Bill Pascrell (D-NJ). Rick Hasen and other have noted that it would take someone like Eric Cantor to help move the VRAA forward. But, I thought it might be slightly notable that it picked up two additional co-sponsors this week--perhaps a small sign of some legislative movement.
