Wondering what life in the Douglass Commonwealth might be like once DC gets statehood?
The League of Women Voters DC decided to ask some experts what statehood will mean for all of us in the District of Columbia.
Please join us for the third of our virtual 3-part panel discussions on July 21, 7-8:30 PM.
Envisioning Statehood: What’s it Worth?
How would DC’s revenues and expenses change when we are admitted to the Union as a state? What federal funds would we lose or gain? What would we have to pay for that we don’t now? What money could we collect that we can’t now?
Expert discussion with:
- Robert Bobb, President and CEO of The Robert Bobb Group, LLC; Former City Administrator and Deputy Mayor of the District of Columbia
- Yesim Sayin, Executive Director, DC Policy Center
- Erica Williams, Executive Director, DC Fiscal Policy Institute
Save the date for our capstone Envisioning Statehood: State of DC Statehood conference on September 17.
