Statehood
D.C. Council Member Harry Thomas, Jr. Introduces Statehood Resolution E-mail

On January 4, 2011, at the first legislative session of the new Council, Council Member Harry Thomas Jr. introduced a resolution endorsing D.C. statehood and urging our Delegate in the U.S. House of Representatives, Eleanor Holmes Norton, to introduce a D.C. statehood bill in Congress. He spoke of his service on the Statehood Commission and his father's work for statehood and urged the other Council Members to support the quest for full democracy in D.C. Council Member Michael A. Brown said our ultimate goal is statehood and we should be angry about our lack of democracy and should be not be afraid or apologetic about talking about statehood. Council Member Marion Barry spoke of his long efforts to bring democracy and statehood to D.C., beginning with the founding of Free D.C. Movement in 1965. He said we should ratchet up our efforts for statehood. The whole city should band together and make statehood our highest priority and sit-in in the Congress if necessary. Council Chairman Kwame Brown referred the resolution to the Housing and Workforce Committee, chaired by Council Member Brown, and allowed all Council Members the opportunity to be co-introducers, which they all did.

Council includes statehood funds in 2011 budget E-mail
When the D.C. Council passed the District of Columbia's 2011 budget on May 26, 2010, they included $250,000 for statehood and voting rights activities, an increase from the $100,000 allotted in 2010 which went to the Council's Special Committee on Statehood and Self-Determination.  Mayor Adrian Fenty's proposed 2011 budget had not included any funding for statehood activities despite the Council's creation this year of the 51st State Commission which is in the process of being organized. Statehood activists from the around the District thank the Council for putting statehood back on the District Government's agenda!
