Federal agencies should have no authority to approve or review the development of DC-owned land or private land in DC.

I’ve introduced bills to strip all federal agencies of this authority.

#DCStatehood Fact of the Week: DC residents are like Americans in all the states.

They’re teachers, health care professionals, retail workers, chefs. All are denied voting representation in Congress and full home rule simply because they live on one side of a border.

I’m horrified by the Supreme Court’s draft order. Congress must immediately codify the right to abortion in federal law.

The draft order is also a reminder to the country that the lack of #DCStatehood means DC residents are uniquely subject to the whims of Congress.

A future Republican Congress may try to ban abortion in DC. We will never allow that to happen.

The horrifying draft SCOTUS opinion would not only end the constitutional right to abortion but threaten other constitutional rights.

It’s also a unique threat to DC women. A Republican Congress could ban abortion in DC.

NJ reported $2 million in sales on the first day of commercialization of recreational marijuana.

Congress, with POTUS’s support, prohibits DC from commercializing rec. marijuana, depriving DC millions of dollars in tax revenue. #HandsOffDC #DCStatehood.

On Saturday, I spoke at the National Cannabis Festival about the rider prohibiting DC from using local funds to commercialize recreational marijuana, my bill to allow marijuana in federally assisted housing in jurisdictions where it is legal, and progress on #DCStatehood.

#DCStatehood Fact of the Week: 200,000 DC residents have served in the military since World War I.

DC residents have given their blood and treasure to support the United States with no voting representation in Congress.

Today, recreational marijuana sales began in New Jersey, allowing the state to tax and regulate recreational marijuana.

Congress prohibits DC from doing so, but #DCStatehood would free DC from congressional interference.
