Report: More federal cash needed for a safe, secure 2020 election
The Brennan Center for Justice, R Street Institute and the Alliance for Securing Democracy teamed with Pitt’s Institute for Cyber Law, Policy, and Security to complete the report.
It’s a challenge that needs to be met, said Paul Rosenzweig, senior fellow of the Washington, D.C.-based R Street Institute.
No one should be forced to choose between staying healthy or exercising their right to vote, Rosenzweig said.
The issue is nonpartisan and needs to be supported by Congress, he said, because elections are the “bedrock of democracy.”
Although it’s costly, it’s worth the money, Rosenzweig said, noting that Americans spend $6 billion a year on toilet paper.
