Hoyer: House Won't Take Up DC Voting Rights This Year


Hoyer said "it is a blight" on democracy that Delegate Eleanor Homes Norton (D) does not have a vote.

"That bill should be unfettered," Hoyer said.

Hoyer (D-MD) said he was "profoundly disappointed" there will be no vote.

He said the bill should "solely" be about the fact that "citizens have the fundamental right to be represented ... with not just a voice but a vote."
