SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Congress is being asked to vote again on a bill that would give Utah a fourth seat in the House of Representatives and a seat for Washington, D.C.
Washington's non-voting delegate wrote House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, suggesting a vote for Feb. 12. That's the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth and the 100th anniversary of the founding of the NAACP.
The House passed a bill in 2007 that would have given the District of Columbia a representative and adding a member to Utah's delegation. But the bill was blocked in the Senate.
