Hoyer Statement on Amicus Brief in DC Voting Rights Case

WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement on the amicus brief filed by the House yesterday in a federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of denying voting rights in Congress to the residents of Washington, DC:

“Yesterday, the Democratic-led House joined an amicus brief in support of residents of the District of Columbia seeking recognition of their fundamental right to Congressional representation. As a strong and longtime supporter of voting rights for DC residents, I am glad House Democrats took this action. We will continue to stand up for the foundational principle in our democracy - that every American deserves an equal voice and a chance to elect representatives who will raise their voices in Congress. That’s why I will continue fighting for full representation for DC residents and for statehood to ensure that representation is never taken away.”
