D.C. Delegate Norton Introduces Statehood Bill E-mail

On January 12, 2011, D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton introduced H.R. 265, entitled "To provide for the admission of the State of New Columbia into the Union."  It was referred to the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and the Committee on Rules.  So far there are no cosponsors.  Statehood advocates need to help recruit both House co-sponsors and Senators to introduce the same bill in the Senate.

When she introduced a statehood bill in 1993, the House of Representatives voted on D.C. statehood for the first time with 60% of Democrats and one Republican supporting it.  The bill failed with a vote of 153 in favor and 277 against. The Senate held a hearing on a D.C. statehood bill introduced by Sen. Edward Kennedy, but did not hold a markup or consider it on the floor. Soon thereafter the Federal Control Board took over many of the functions of the District's home rule government and the Democrats lost control House of Representatives. The bill's text and Delegate Norton's introductory remarks on this and two other bills are below.

Washington Post reporter Ann E. Marimow wrote in the December 18, 2010 edition of the newspaper about the possible effect of the November 2010 elections on Congressional oversight and budget control of the District of Columbia. She writes that "Congressional oversight and budget control of the District means that the rules governing life in the federal city can change with the whims of Capitol Hill lawmakers. For gay couples, parents relying on private school vouchers, prospective medical-marijuana patients and those trying to stem the spread of HIV and AIDS with clean needles, nothing is ever settled, it seems." Unlike every other city, town and state in the nation, Congress can overrule the decisions made by the people of Washington, D.C. and their elected local leaders and we have no voice in the decision.

D.C. sets sights on statehood with voting bill floundering E-mail
In the June 10, 2010 edition of the Washington Post, Mike DeBonis writes that "(w)ith a seven-year effort to win a House of Representatives vote for the District now foundering, officials and activists are starting to wonder how to proceed with the city's decades-long fight for congressional representation. The answer that's emerging, in candidate forums this campaign season and in the city budget, is an old one: statehood."
