SHOULD D.C. GET A SEAT IN CONGRESS?
For years, the District of Columbia has pushed for a full-voting seat in the House. They currently have a Delegate who votes only in committee. Under a deal that passed out of a Senate committee, the House would be expanded by two seats, one for D.C. and one for Utah, for a new total of 437 seats in the chamber. As D.C. is expected to elect a Democrat and Utah a Republican, the partisan balance is not expected to change. Should the House of Representatives be expanded to provide a full-voting seat to D.C.? Select your initial view below for more details.
