Cosponsor the Banning Smoking on Amtrak Act

I invite you to join me as a co-sponsor of H.R. 2353, the “Duty To Refuse and Report Foreign Interference in American Elections Act of 2019,” which I introduced to impose an affirmative duty to refuse any offer of election campaign assistance from
any agent or entity acting on behalf or in the interest of a foreign government and to report to the Federal Bureau of Investigation any such offer of assistance from an agent or entity acting on behalf or in the interest of a foreign government. This duty
to refuse and report shall apply to candidates and any person working for, or volunteering with, a candidate for election to federal office. The legislation also requires the Federal Election Commission to require that a candidate for election to federal office
must certify quarterly that he or she is compliance with the above requirements. Violation of the Act carries a penalty of not more than 5 years in prison and a fine of not more than $250,000.
