Vote React: Fenty on the Senate Bill
Mayor Adrian M. Fenty released the following statement last night after the Senate vote.
"Today's Senate vote is a historic breakthrough in the District of Columbia's 200-year-old fight for full voting rights. On behalf of District residents across the city, I wish to express thanks to the U. S. Senate, particularly Senators Joseph Lieberman, Harry Reid and Orrin Hatch for their tremendous support and leadership. Since the bill is not final, my Administration will continue to work with both the Senate and House leadership to ensure the bill reflects the priorities of District residents and is passed in final form as swiftly as humanly possible."
