The Voter Registration Integrity Act would required DMVs to identify new voters in their state and ensure those individuals are removed from their former state's voter rolls.
It’s called the Voter Registration Integrity Act and it is one of the newest measures introduced by U.S. legislators to tackle voter fraud. This particular legislation was introduced Wednesday by Republican U.S. Reps. Candice Miller (MI-10) and Todd Rokita (IN-4). If passed, the act would require state motor vehicle departments to ask new residents who are seeking a driver's license if he or she intends to register to vote in the new state. If the answer is yes, that department is compelled to notify the former state and allow the removal of that voter from their voter rolls. “In recent months I have been working with Michigan’s current Secretary of State Ruth Johnson and my House colleague Todd Rokita, a former Secretary of State in …

At 1:40 p.m. today, the president will make a public address asking Congress to take action on this issue. His remarks will be streamed live at WhiteHouse.gov/live.
On July 1, the interest rates of approximately 7.4 million students' federal loans are scheduled to double unless Congress and President Barack Obama agree to freeze the rate for at least another year. While both the Obama administration and Republican leaders agree the rate should be frozen at the current 3.4 percent, the two have been unable to reach a compromise on how to pay for the plan. Under a plan proposed and passed by the House in April, the interest rate freeze would be funded by cutting some $6 billion from Obama's preventative health care program. However, the White House has said it would veto such legislation as the proposed bill would take money from health programs that fund services like cancer screening and child …

U.S. Rep. Candice Miller says Michigan citizens are "getting fleeced" by the National Flood Insurance Program. She is proposing the program not be reauthorized, but replaced and privatized.
The U.S. House of Representatives has delayed a vote on a bill that would extend the National Flood Insurance Program for another 30 days. Some 20,000 communities across the U.S. participate in the NFIP by adopting floodplain management ordinances to reduce future flood damage. In exchange, the NFIP makes federally-backed flood insurance available to homeowners, renters, and business owners in these communities, according to the Federal Emergency Management Association. The NFIP is scheduled to expire at the end of May unless both houses of Congress reauthorize it. U.S. Rep. Candice Miller (District 10) made the following remarks Wednesday on the floor of the House in opposition to continued reauthorization of NFIP: What in the world is …

The Interest Rate Reduction Act would freeze a scheduled rate increase on federal student loans but cut preventative health care programs to offset the freeze's cost.
U.S. Rep. Candice Miller (MI-10) supported the passage of a bill Friday that would prevent a scheduled interest rate increase on federal student loans by cutting a preventative health care program. Miller was one of 215 House representatives to support the Interest Rate Reduction Act, which would preserve the rate on subsidized Stafford loans to undergraduate students by cutting the Prevention and Public Health Fund created in President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act, according to The Huffington Post. The interest rates are scheduled to increase to 6.8 percent on July 1, but IRRA would extend lower rates for an additional year. Under a 2007 statute, the 6.8 percent rates were phased down to 3.4 percent, but were set to return to their …

U.S. Rep. Candice Miller and 14 of her state colleagues in the U.S. House signed a letter this week voicing their opposition to proposed cuts to the Air National Guard in 2013.
U.S. Rep. Candice Miller (R-10) led 14 of her Michigan colleagues this week in raising concerns to House and Senate Armed Services Committees regarding proposed cuts to the Air National Guard under the Air Force's 2013 budget.

"Michigan’s entire U.S. House delegation is unified against these cuts to the Air National Guard and will continue our efforts to turn them back.” Led by Miller, Michigan's 15 U.S. representatives signed a letter this week …
