Washington, DC –  Reuters just exclusively reported President Biden would veto the Republican-backed bill to overturn police reform in Washington, DC if it passes in the full Congress. In light of this positive development, DC Vote’s communications director Patrice Snow released the following statement:

“We at DC Vote and in the DC Statehood movement fully support President Biden’s promise to veto legislation that would overturn lawfully-passed legislation by the DC Council. This disapproval resolution doesn’t respect DC’s autonomy or home rule rights. Instead of Congress focusing on acting as overlords of the District of Columbia, they should focus on issues their constituents back home care about.”
