Issa Willing to Open Up D.C. Bill to Plenty of Policy Riders

Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call
Oversight ranking member Elijah Cummings (left) and Chairman Darrell Issa are working on a bill to provide D.C. with budget autonomy.

“When a chairman of either party listens to the District of Columbia the way Chairman Issa listened ... [and] comes forward with a plan ... it seemed to us that we owed the chairman of this committee our due diligence to look at this proposal, and I am glad we did,” Norton said.

Neither Norton nor Cummings commented on Issa’s plan to allow riders to be discussed at length in advance of the legislation’s formal consideration.
