The Office of Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) said that the Congresswoman today had confirmed continuing support of the new House Democratic leadership for the pending D.C. House vote bill. Leader Nancy Pelosi is a cosponsor. Unfortunately, the Judiciary Committee required preliminary action by the newly elected Utah legislature, which has not met or acted yet, putting at risk the passage that Norton is pressing during the lame duck session that begins Monday. If time runs out, the D.C.-Utah bill will be reintroduced in the new Congress.
