Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) today released the following statement on the White House decision to put the District of Columbia "taxation without representation" license plates on all presidential limousines beginning this weekend.

"Kudos to the President for agreeing to a small but larger than life sign of his commitment to the District and its residents. Double kudos to the D.C. Council for pursuing a strategy to make it happen. Each step must be counted as bringing us closer to our full entitlement as American citizens who pay more than our fair share of federal taxes and have served in all the nation's wars, always without the rights those obligations demand."
