ATU condemns Florida Republicans’ Outrageous Voter Suppression Law

Silver Spring, MD – Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) International President John Costa released the following statement after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed Senate Bill 90, a sweeping voter suppression bill:

“The recent voter suppression bill, S.B. 90, which the Florida Senate passed and was signed into law by Governor DeSantis, is shameful. This bill, which is now the law, is an all-out assault on Floridians’ right to vote, aimed at silencing working people of color across the state. This new law is an attempt to drag Florida back to the racist Jim Crow era. Republican-led states across this country are leading the charge with similar bills to disenfranchise black, brown, young, and working-class voters. We will not stand for this.”
