Oppose: Representative Cain's bill would grossly expand the criminal penalties for voting-related offenses. These penalties would be in addition to already existing ones and would push election law violations into the same sentencing range as cases involving murder or theft of property valued between $150,000-$300,000. 

Update May 31, 2021: This bill did not progress beyond the House Calendars committee where it was postponed.
