This is very VERY good news. The bill passed with a 61-37 vote. It is believed that once it goes to the House, it will have ample support to pass. One step closer to representation for DC residents!!!

However, the bill passed with a controversial gun-control amendment negating nearly all gun-control laws currently in DC. However, the House’s bill will not include that amendment and if the House’s version passes, the two chambers will have to discuss what to do with it. I hope it gets stricken from the bill.
