Georgia’s two Democratic U.S. Senators introduced the Voters’ Access To Water Act Monday in response to Gov. Brian Kemp signing Republican-backed voting legislation earlier this year, including a measure that criminalizes the act of “line-warming,” or passing out snacks and drinks to voters in line.
Sen. Ossoff said that this bill would ensure that non-partisan volunteers can hand out water to voters — who sometimes have to wait hours in line — without fear of criminal prosecution.
