Bill is back to make Washington, DC 51st state — still faces high hurdle in Senate

"The license plates for D C. Residents read in big, bold letters and taxation without representation. It's a rallying cry against D. C is the lack of direct voting power in the U. S. Congress as NPR's Barbara Sprint reports. Statehood advocates are hopeful that what was once seen as a liberal pipe dream is now gaining traction. 30 years ago, delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton first introduced a bill for Washington D. C. Statehood. She's back at it, and this time, she says, it feels different. We've gotten off of the wish list, too. On approach of a new reality. Norton says she's encouraged by national polls that suggest growing support for statehood and the record number of co sponsors. The House legislation and its Senate counterpart, have Her bill, which strength the size of the federal district and admit the remaining area as the nation's 51st state. But Republicans stand universally opposed, arguing it would take a constitutional amendment to admit D. C as a state. Here's Georgia Congressman Jody Hice during today's House oversight hearing, the Democratic Party attempting a political power grab of obtaining more senators, that's entirely what this is all about. That phrase power grab is a constant and GOP messaging on statehood, referring to the fact that the district votes overwhelmingly for Democrats and would likely elect two Democratic senators. But Norton tells NPR that at its core statehood is not about politics while we're looking for is equality with other Americans, especially since we pay the highest federal taxes per capita in the United States, she notes that D C has a population of over 700,000 residents larger than Wyoming and Vermont. Last year when the House first past Norton's bill, Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas, dismissed that point. Wyoming is a well rounded working class state. New state of Washington would not be. It was a barb that stung many residents in the district, including business owner Deana Dorsey Calloway. You can't see me, but I'm having an emotional reaction. The eyes are watering probably hear my voice quivering of it, because Just it's disgusting. It's you're a sure of an entire population of people here in Washington, advocates argue statehood is also a civil rights issue, as most of DC's residents are minorities. We do believe this is one of the most important racial justice fights of our time that stash a Rhodes, campaign manager of 51 for 51, a statehood campaign from our perspective, leaving 700,000 mostly black and brown residents without a vote in Congress is racism. D C. Residents pay federal taxes and serve in the military but have no voting Congress. This is an injustice and honestly a stain on American democracy. Norton's bill is all but guaranteed passage in the House. There's broad support from Democrats in the Senate and the White House. But there's a road block. The Senate has a big brick wall in front of its called the Filibusters that house bills are passing and slamming right into. That's Ellie's up Nick of Fix our Senate, a campaign focused on eliminating the legislative filibuster, which requires a 60 senator threshold to advance most bills. Not all Senate Democrats are on board with eliminating the maneuver, arguing it's meant to protect the minority party. But unless that brick wall is eliminated or changed, D C statehood goes back to being on the Democratic wish list.

I'm Kate Wolf. Some homeless youth in San Francisco will move into a navigation center this week built just for them. Joining me now is KQED housing reporter Erin Baldessari, who visited the center located downtown in the Lower Polk neighborhood. So Aaron, these navigation centers have become one model of how the city is tackling its homelessness crisis in the city, says these centers take a more holistic approach to housing people. That's right. Yeah Navigation centers are essentially homeless shelters that offer services on site. They have lower barriers to entry so folks can bring their pets in. They can cohabitate with partners often times If you were curfews and set meal times, so it's just easier for people to access those services and at this particular center. There will also be opportunities for job training and for folks to continue their education. These young people who are between 18 and 24, they make up about 14% of the city's homeless population. What issues does this group have that necessitates the need for a separate location from older adults. Studies have shown that if you separate out younger adults from older adults within homeless shelters that that can lead to better outcomes, So this is really about a preventative measure to ensure that young people are not becoming chronically homeless. And it's also part of a campaign that Mayor London Breed launched in 2018, which has some city money in it, But it's mostly funded through philanthropic donations, and that will help folks in the center access rental.

Senators were sworn in yesterday to be jurors in the impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump over his role in the insurrection at the U. S Capitol. But that procedural step was marked by a bit of drama, thanks to a maneuver by Kentucky Senator Rand Paul. As NPR's Barbara Sprint reports in a tweet. On Monday, Paul previewed that he wanted to force lawmakers on the record over the issue of whether former President Trump's impeachment trial is constitutional. He did just that yesterday. The move cut even some of his colleagues off guard. They think I was more surprised than anything. That's Lisa Murkowski, Republican senator from Alaska. Paul argued. The trial is a partisan exercise and unconstitutional because Trump is no longer an office if the accused is no longer president, where is the constitutional power? To impeach him. Private citizens don't get impeached. Impeachment is for removal from office and the accused here has already left office. But majority leader Chuck Schumer dismissed the idea and sought to table the motion. The theory that the Senate can try former officials would amount to a constitutional get out of jail free card. For any president who commits an impeachable offense. The Senate voted 55 to 45 to reject Paul's argument, clearing the way for the trial to move forward on February 9th. The outcome was expected. Democrats had enough votes to dismiss Paul's motion. But the vote count is telling and likely for shadows the intentions of most Republican senators during the trial itself, It could signal a blow to the House's case in the Senate before the trial even starts. A two thirds majority is required for a Senate conviction. Democrats would need 17 Republicans to join them to convict Trump, and in this vote on Lee, five, Republicans joined Democrats to table the motion. That includes Markowski. She says she expects the question about constitutionality to come up during the trial. I think this is a matter that needs to be brought before the full Senate. I think we need to have that level of briefing, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has left the door open on how he would vote after the trial. Still, even he sided with most of the Republican Conference in support of Paul's motion. Senate Minority Whip John Thune of South Dakota, a Republican, said the vote doesn't necessarily indicate that lawmakers will vote one way or another after the trial. I just think that it was a question on the constitutionality of it. I don't think it binds anybody wants the trial starts. But Susan Collins, a Republican from Maine, who voted with the Democrats, says the implication is clear. The Senate will ultimately not convict Trump. Do the math. Do the math, she says.
