Mark your calendars! One month from today, on Thursday, September 19th, the House will hold the first hearing on in over 25 years. Our bill (HR 51) has 215 voting cosponsors. Looking for more because it will almost surely pass the House this Congress!

There is still time to cosponsor HR 51 to make DC the 51st state. Our thanks to Democrats who have already cosponsored. For those who have not, there is still time to cosponsor HR 51, which will almost surely pass the House this session.

Unaccompanied minors should be placed with families, not shelters in DC or anywhere else.

The good news for DC is that since Democrats took control of the House, I have not had to fight to protect DC’s gun violence prevention laws from Republican attacks. DC should remain free to determine its own laws.

House Democrats gave gun violence prevention and background checks such high priority, our bill was “HR 8.” The least the Senate should do, following the tragic massacres in El Paso and Dayton, is come back into session and pass HR 8.

Big win for DC vets after I met with DC VA Director Michael Heimall on plans to close the Southeast Washington Community-Based Outpatient Clinic. Thank you VA for signing a new, three-year lease for this unique health care facility in the District!

The new Dem House gave priority to passing a bill requiring a check on background before selling a gun. Why isn’t that the headline after El Paso and Dayton?.
