EAST GREENBUSH – Senator Chuck Schumer (D) is pushing a bill he says needs to get passed in order to secure the upcoming Presidential Election.

Schumer was in East Greenbush, New York on Monday calling on Congress to pass the Election Security Act, a billion-dollar spending bill introduced by Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar in the upcoming budget.

“If people no longer trust the freeness, fairness, preciseness of our elections, this could be real trouble for our democracy,” said Schumer.

The Senator says there is some current opposition to the bill, but he hopes to smooth it over by the time the budget needs to pass in late September.
