DC Vote Statement in Response to US Court of Appeals Ruling on DC Budget Autonomy
DC Vote issued the following statement in response to the US Court of Appeals' ruling in the District's budget autonomy case to dismiss the previous ruling and remand the case to DC's Superior Court.
“Today is a good day for democracy in DC. It shows the promise of what's possible when we all stand together. The will of DC voters, to control our local tax dollars, is the law. After a long, hard fight, District residents finally have a huge victory that affirms democracy in America. We look forward to the DC Council and the Mayor spending our local tax dollars on our local priorities just like every other jurisdiction in America.”
