The Biden White House has formally declared support for making Washington D.C. the 51st. state.
Biden’s Office of Management and Budget said in a statement of administration policy “Establishing the State of Washington, Douglass Commonwealth as the 51st state will make our Union stronger and more just. Washington, D.C. has a robust economy, a rich culture, and a diverse population of Americans from all walks of life who are entitled to full and equal participation in our democracy.”
The statement then called for Congress “to provide for a swift and orderly transition to statehood for the people of Washington, D.C.”
