Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) thanked 102 national and local groups for sending a letter today calling on Congress to retroactively fix the treatment of the District of Columbia as a territory rather than a state in the state stabilization fund in the third coronavirus response bill, which deprived the District of $750 million. The letter, led by DC Vote, was signed by leading national civil rights, labor, environmental and democracy reform groups, as well as by local D.C. groups.
