Congressman Cloud Opposes Unconstitutional D.C. Statehood Bill

Today, the House voted on a bill that would unconstitutionally grant Washington, D.C. statehood. Congressman Michael Cloud (TX-27) voted no on this purely political power grab. 

The U.S. Constitution stipulates that Washington, D.C. be treated differently than the fifty states. Admitting D.C. as a state would require a constitutional amendment, and this bill bypasses that process. 

“The Constitution’s framers purposefully separated Washington, D.C. because they believed the federal government should have authority over the nation’s capital,” said Congressman Cloud. “That way, no state would have control over the seat of government.”

Congressman Cloud will continue to oppose the effort to make Washington, D.C. a state.
