WASHINGTON, D.C. — Tomorrow, the House will debate and vote on Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton’s (D-DC) District of Columbia statehood bill (H.R. 51), paving the way for D.C. residents to finally receive voting representation in Congress and full local self-government. With 216 cosponsors, the bill is virtually assured House passage, which will mark the second time in history a chamber has passed the D.C. statehood bill. The first was when the House passed the bill last year.
