Moreover, on Tuesday, the Biden administration made it official: In a statement of administration policy, the Office of Management and Budget said Congress should “provide for a swift and orderly transition to statehood” for the District of Columbia, and called for passage of H.R. 51, the Washington, D.C. Admission Act.
