District of Columbia: House committee holds hearing on House member for DC
The Washington Times reports: Law experts and officials testified on the Capitol Hill yesterday on the constitutionality of a bill that would give the District one vote in Congress.
The bill, introduced early this year by Rep. Thomas M. Davis III, Virginia Republican, and Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, a Democrat and the District's non-voting member of the House, also would give Utah, a primarily Republican state, an extra vote.
The District is not considered a state and does not have voting representatives in the House or in the Senate.
The hearing was held before the House Judiciary Constitution subcommittee. -- Officials testify on a vote for D.C. - Metropolitan - The Washington Times, America's Newspaper
