Washington, DC – The House Rules Committee just passed two disapproval resolutions for legislation that was lawfully passed by the DC Council. In light of these latest developments against democracy, DC Vote’s communications director Patrice Snow released the following statement:

“Members of Congress from random places like South Carolina and Oklahoma who happen to have a seat on the House Rules Committee have just decided to vote for two disapproval resolutions overriding the will of the 700,000 tax paying residents of DC and their elected officials. DC Statehood is the only way to protect the full freedom of the Americans who happen to call DC home. If this happened in any other jurisdiction in America, there would be outrage. Congressional interference must end and DC Statehood is the only logical solution.”
