note to D.C. residents: Move

If you want your Representative to have a vote in Congress then move to one of the fifty states and choose one of the 435 congressional districts.

Congress debates a House of Representatives vote for Washington D.C.

The Senate voted 62 to 34 to begin debating a measure that would also grant an additional House seat to Utah, enlarging the House to 437 seats. In 2007 supporters of the bill fell three votes short of overcoming a Senate filibuster against it.
Sponsors of the voting bill were optimistic they could win Senate approval by the end of the week after consideration of changes proposed by Republican opponents. The Senate would then begin to work out differences with the House in hopes of quickly sending a bill to
President Obama, who has indicated he would sign it. A court challenge is considered a certainty.
