Taxation with Represention

The House of Representatives will vote by the end of this month on a bill giving the District a full vote in the chamber, Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer announced yesterday. The action would mark the first time in 14 years that a bill granting the District a voting representative reaches the floor of the House. A D.C. statehood measure was soundly defeated in 1993.

    I’ve already emailed some of my congressmen.

    Also that website you gave seems broken, maybe it was a wrong link?
