No Taxation Without Representation Act Introduced In Senate

2005

Sen. Joseph Lieberman (D., Conn.) again introduces the No Taxation Without Representation Act, which provides for full voting representation in Congress for the residents of the District of Columbia, including two senators and as many representatives as a similarly populous state would be entitled to under the law. The legislation treats the District of Columbia as a state for purposes of congressional voting representation. Additionally, it prescribes a procedure for the first elections under this act.
