Progress is progress I guess
Well, dear readers, it appears as though Washington, D.C., may finally be getting some headway in Congress. Congressman Tom Davis (R-Va) has proposed a bill to grant one voting representative to D.C., effective in the next Congress, and give a fourth representative to Utah. This bill would boost the number of seats in the House to 437 until the 2010 Census, when the total would drop back to 435. (D.C. would retain its seat and the remaining 434 would be doled out as per usual.) While I don't like the idea of giving a somewhat undeserved seat to Utah, this seems like an okay compromise.
