On Monday afternoon, February 23, the U.S. Senate began debate on S.160, the bill to give the District of Columbia a voting member of the U.S. House. If the expected schedule prevails, the Senate will vote at 11 a.m. Tuesday, February 24, on whether to end debate. The bill expands the size of the House permanently, from 435 to 437 seats. If it passes, Utah would also gain a seat between now and 2011. The bill requires Utah to redistrict itself into 4 districts.
