Senate Passes Legislation To Give DC Citizens Vote In Congress

The people of District of Columbia would get the vote in Congress the Founding Fathers denied them under legislation the Senate has approved.

The Senate legislation would give the district a vote in the House of Representatives. The bill offsets what is certain to be a gain for Democrats by adding one seat in Republican-leaning Utah.

The House is to take up the measure next week and is expected to pass it easily. More difficult could be a certain court challenge from opponents who say it is unconstitutional to give a vote to the nation’s capital because it is not a state.
