On Friday, January 4, our non-voting delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton introduced H.R. 51, the Washington DC Admission Act, as the second bill of the 116thCongress. The bill was introduced with the enthusiastic support and participation of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and with a RECORD 151 original co-sponsors.
How can you help?
Wednesday, Feb. 13, is the statehood movement’s annual lobbying day on Capitol Hill. There are morning and afternoon shifts available, and training and meals will be provided. Never lobbied before? Don’t worry – experienced leaders of the statehood movement will be with you to guide the way. Experienced citizen lobbyist? That’s great, too. Either way, the movement needs you.
