Norton Introduces 94th and 95th Bills of 115th Congress, Most by Any Member
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) yesterday introduced two bills to bring her total to 95 bills, the most by any House Member in the 115th Congress. Norton introduced her bill to require all federal agencies to include in their annual budget requests to Congress the amount they spend on advertising contracts with small disadvantaged businesses and businesses owned by minorities and women. Norton also introduced her bill to require the Director of the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency for the District of Columbia and the Director of the Pretrial Services Agency for the District of Columbia to reside in the District during the Directors’ tenures.
“I am proud to have introduced a personal record number of bills this Congress to address issues far and wide, ranging from D.C. statehood and expanding D.C. home rule, to promoting equal pay, reducing workplace discrimination, protecting the environment, investing in transportation and many other priorities that matter most to D.C. residents,” Norton said. “Going into next year with the House majority, I am looking forward to working with our Democratic Committee chairs to move many of my bills forward.”
