2016 AR0 Statehood Initiatives Agency

Friday, July 17, 2015

The mission of the Statehood Initiatives Agency (SIA) is to inform the Congress and individual members of Congress that the District residents meet the standards traditionally required by Congress for the admission as a state of the United States; to monitor the progress of the petition for admission of the District of Columbia to statehood pending before the Congress and report on the progress to the District residents; and to advise the District on matters of public policy that bear on the achievement of statehood.

The agency may employ staff and expend funds donated by private sources for public purposes related to the achievement of statehood and may carry out any other powers or duties as may be provided by law.
