On Thursday, April 19, 2007, the DC
Voting Rights Act (H.R. 1905) passed the House of Representatives 241-177.
This is the first time in a generation that the House has passed a bill that
works toward bringing voting representation to the nearly 600,000 Americans
living in the nation's capital.
On May 1, 2007, Senators Joe Lieberman (I-CT), Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Bob
Bennett (R-UT) introduced the DC House Voting Rights Act (S. 1257) in the
Senate. On Wednesday, June 13, 2007, the DC
House Voting Rights Act (S. 1257) passed in the Senate Committee on Homeland
Security and Governmental Affairs 9-1! With broad bipartisan support, this
gives the bill ever-growing momentum as it now moves to the Senate Floor.
