DC Voters Approve Statehood Measure
Voters in the District of Columbia passed a measure in favor of petitioning Congress to become a state in the union. The newly approved measure seeks to have the District admitted to the Union as the State of New Columbia.
The measure also approves a constitution to be adopted by the Council, state boundaries, and the guarantee of an elected representative form of government.
The petition now goes to Congress, which has the power to permit or deny it.
