"Copper Beech Drive in Rock Creek Park has been closed to cars for most of the pandemic, creating a paradise for bikers, walkers and runners. Could that be permanent at an online Q and a session hosted by D. C.

We do plan when the city returns to Is four, which is normal operations for the city. The plan currently is to reopen. However, Washburn says there's been a lot of discussion among D C leaders about this and her agency is willing to listen. If it is permanently closed, there would have to be some plan for the more than 5000 cars a day that used the roadway prior to the pandemic. Kyle

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.

Washington, DC Statehood Bill Introduced By Senate Democrats

"Now you know this has been on the wish list of democrats for quite some time along with a promoting of puerto rico to statehood as well. Now that's compensation for a different time. But you had senator tom carper. He's democrat out of delaware leading over three dozen of his democrat colleagues to introduce companion bill for washington dc statehood gesture on tuesday. Now remember a similar. Bill passed the house last year. Now will face well pretty much. A democrat controlled senate to determine if dc will become the fifty first state but is that even possible. Well i found this piece. I pulled this back in early january out of the washington post. And it's pretty indepth piece about dc statehood. Bottom line is these. Dc statehood still faces a number of high hurdles not only in the narrowly divided senate but yes in public opinion as well. Think about this. A two thousand nine thousand nine gallup poll found that nearly two-thirds of us opposed dc statehood. So why is in dc already a state. well we need to look at the constitution washington. Dc's founding is enshrined in the constitution which provides that the district not exceeding the constitution. Not exceeding ten miles. Square would become the seat of the government of the united states now for a brief period of time after the city's creation back in seventeen ninety residents -joyed voting rights and were allowed to cast ballots as residents of maryland or virginia but those rights ended shortly after congress moved into town and the new capital in eighteen hundred and pass the district of columbia organic act of eighteen. O one the act stripped dc residents of their rights to vote in all federal elections including for president and gave congress oversight of the city. Have you ever seen a dc washing a plate license plate. You know what it says you know with. The slogan is taxation without representation. Now the district was not afforded presidential electors until the passage of the twenty-third amendment. Back in one thousand. Nine hundred sixty one. Its residents didn't get a non voting delegates in the house until nineteen seventy so begs the question. How can congress change this well. Those opposed to making dc estate have argued that statehood for dc can't happen without a constitutional amendment. They say that the founders intended the entire district to serve as the seat of federal government not as state but legislation put forth by non voting delegate. Eleanor holmes norton every year since nineteen ninety-one would not eliminate the seat of government that the constitution calls for in stead her bill which shrink the national capital to a small complex of federal buildings while allowing the rest of the district to become a state proponents of statehood for their part argue that this plan preserves federal enclave. Whose only requirement is that. It can't exceed ten square miles and escapes the need for a constitutional amendment. Nothing simple as that outstanding questions remain over. What would happen to the three electoral college votes. Currently afforded to the district when it becomes a smaller that role enclave. And some have wondered whether the twenty-third amendment would have to be repealed. So that the few residents of the federal enclave namely we're talking about those residing at sixteen hundred pennsylvania avenue don't retain them so what needs to happen for dc to become state. Well the bill to make these estate obviously has enough supports in the house to pass again and jordi leader steny hoyer pledged to bring it to vote with backing from speaker. Nancy pelosi by your indeed even though the senate is pretty evenly split. Well let's just say it's a tough road to hoe in the senate democrats occupy half the seats in that chambers. Thanks to the victories of ossoff and wore knock In georgia both of whom support would no surprise there. And then you've got vice president. Kamala harris in this fifty fifty split in the senate able to cast the tie breaking boat and she liked biden supports
