D.C. Statehood — In Our Lifetime
A group of dedicated and determined District residents have been volunteering to educate Congress about D.C. Statehood. Encouraged by the fact that 4 senators, including Illinois Senator Dick Durbin --- a confidant of President Obama --- have introduced a D.C. Statehood Bill; while Congresswoman Norton has reintroduced a companion Bill, these citizens are making significant headway in dispelling the many myths about D.C. Statehood. Below you will find a FAQ Sheet and Bill Summary they are distributing and a facsimile of the Map of the new state. Should you wish to join this effort kindly contact Josh Burch at 202.641.4680. The Senate Bill is S. 132 (the New Columbia Admission Act) and the House Bill is H.R. 292.
