Please correct me if I am wrong, but isn't the land the D.C. site on federal land right now? Are the federal authorities responsible for protecting the capital buildings?
If D.C. is made a state all that would transfer to the new state Governemnt.
How would all that be worked out? You have to figure in the federal protection of the president and the other representatvies.
If D.C. is a state they will butt heads at every turn.
Why go through all that?
