Rep. Jim Clyburn statement on failure of Senate to pass voting rights legislation

Rep. Jim Clyburn released the following statement after the Senate voted against a one-time change to the chamber's filibuster rules late Wednesday night essentially killing voting rights legislation.

Although the Senate’s inaction is disappointing, this is not the end.

Those of us who are committed to our nation’s pursuit of a more perfect Union will continue to heed John Lewis’ admonition to "stand up, speak out and get in the way" to get voter protections signed into law.
