Changing License Plates?

Come 2011, these license plates may start becoming collectors’ items:
That’s right. The Senate passed legislation today to give DC citizens a vote in Congress! The measure would add a representative for DC starting in the next Congress, and would also give an additional representative to Utah, a very Republican-leaning state. This would bring the total members of the House to 437. It looks like there will be a legal challenge after this becomes law, but supporters claim that Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution is on their side, which empowers Congress to “exercise exclusive legislation in all cases whatsoever” over the District. Hopefully, this bill will pass muster. DC citizens have lacked representation for far too long, and it’ll be good to see Eleanor Holmes Norton with some real voting power, for a change!
