One-Page Summaries of Amendment 1

As an update to our February 2020 report, PGP has released one-page summaries on Amendment 1's provisions regarding minority protections, commission process, and transparency requirements.

The first clarifies that Amendment 1 does protect minority communities, on its own and without enabling legislation, through standalone Voting Rights Act language. The latter two one-pagers discuss Amendment 1's commission process and public input/transparency requirements. They also explain how enabling legislation, which died in Conference Committee, would have built upon these provisions and offer other suggestions.
