Welcome to the District of Columbia Statehood Congressional Delegation
The District of Columbia Statehood Congressional Delegation’s main objective is to work to end the disenfranchisement of DC residents by helping achieve Statehood for the District of Columbia.
Statehood for the people of the District of Columbia will be achieved by the House and Senate passing and the President signing the New Columbia Admission Act Statehood legislation, which requires a simple majority vote and cannot be repealed. This is the legislative process by which every state, except for the original 13 states, became a part of the United States.
The people of the District of Columbia voted in support of statehood and ratified a state constitution in 1982.
