“Virginia lawmakers split on election reform plans”

WaPo reports.

Most important here is the reaction of (Republican) House Administration incoming chair Candice Miller:

Rep. Candice S. Miller (R-Mich.), the incoming chair of the House Administration Committee, which handles most election bills, said voting problems are best handled “at the state and local level.”

Miller, the former Michigan secretary of state, noted that Congress spent billions of dollars to improve states’ election procedures through the 2002 Help America Vote Act.

“Now, after this last election, I’m very sympathetic to the folks who had to stand in long lines, but I don’t believe Congress should spend any more money because of those couple of states” where that occurred, she said.
