Should DC become the 51st state? DC Vote Executive Director Bo Shuff joins FOX 5’s Tom Fitzgerald in this episode of the On The Hill podcast. We look at the Congressional hearing that was just held on H.R. 51 in Congress, the arguments for and against statehood, national public opinion against Statehood, and the political challenges the effort faces in both the House and the Senate. Finally, we do a deep dive on how even some folks on the same side of the issue have very different ideas about how best to achieve their goal of full representation in Congress for the more than 700,000 DC residents.
