Bill To Give DC Voting Rights Moves Out OF Senate Committee
The Washington Post:
The D.C. voting rights bill has won another victory. The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee approved the legislation this morning by a vote of 9 to 1.
Virginia's Sen. John W. Warner (R), cast the dissenting vote, but in an encouraging sign for advocates, three Republicans voted in favor of giving the District a full voting member in the House: Susan Collins of Maine, George V. Voinovich of Ohio and Norm Coleman of Minnesota.
