Should Washington, D.C. become the 51st state? | Pro/Con – The Philadelphia Inquirer

8February 2021

Last month, Delaware Senator Tom Carper re-introduced a bill that, if passed, would make Washington, D.C. the nation’s 51st state. The bill is tightly tied to the ongoing debate over filibuster reform. Should the filibuster be eliminated, the measure would only need a simple majority (which the Democrats have) to pass. There’s currently no public Senate GOP support for D.C. statehood, but Carper’s bill is another step toward potential representation for the District, which some residents have been clamoring for for decades.
