I have an important update: Markup for my bill to make Washington, D.C. our country’s 51st state is happening today and the House is scheduled to bring it up for a vote next week.
We need to gather 10,000 grassroots signatures in support of D.C. statehood before the House vote next week. Click here to add your name >> [[link removed]]
This isn’t a partisan issue and it’s not even a D.C. issue -- it’s an American issue and an issue of basic fairness.
The more than 700,000 Americans who call D.C. home, work and have built families in our great country just like the rest of us, and they deserve a full voice in our democracy.
“No taxation without representation” is more than just a slogan on D.C. license plates . With today’s markup, we’re one step closer to correcting a longstanding injustice and fulfilling the promise our Founding Fathers envisioned for our country.
And with President Biden’s support and 42 endorsements from my colleagues in the Senate, momentum is growing for D.C. statehood. We need to keep it going ahead of the House’s vote next week. Please -- sign on your support for making D.C. our 51st state today. [[link removed]]
