The Hill’s Kelly McCormack has a good article about this development.

“Moving this ball down the court means moving it out of committee and onto the floor,” Reid said at a press conference with the D.C. Council, Mayor Adrian Fenty, Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-Conn.) and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.). “I intend to do that,” Reid said.
