The sentence says there is growing demand of X and Y, that means X and Y are already exist and then It more appropriate to says they allow rather than they will allow
Basically in second part od sent. you are defining X and Y so present tense

why it is not B. B also loojs logical. Both X and Y. A has pronoun reference error. Them refers to laws or voters, is not clear

Oh ok that demand for something which is existant !

I short listed to A and B...Went for B. I still cant digest that its A....because of the "Them" at the end of the sentence.
