Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C.—As the House of Representatives gavels out until the November elections, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) today will hold time on the House floor to talk about the record-breaking support she has garnered for District of Columbia statehood this Congress, while simultaneously fighting back against a record number of anti-democratic attacks by House Republicans on D.C.’s local laws and policies.  Norton is expected to speak on the House floor near noon.

“As my colleagues prepare to head back to their districts for the upcoming midterm elections, I want to leave them with D.C. statehood ringing in their ears as they may come back to find a different party in control of Congress,” Norton said.
