House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer says members of Congress could vote as early as next week on a bill that would give the District of Columbia a voting member of Congress.

D.C.'s nonvoting representative, Eleanor Holmes Norton, also says the vote could come next week.

The Senate passed a bill granting D.C. a vote more than a year ago, but senators added a gun amendment that would repeal strict gun registration requirements and restrictions on semiautomatic weapons in the city. The bill since stalled without a vote in the House. Hoyer says the bill lawmakers are working on still includes some version of that amendment.

The bill would add two new members, one for the Democrat-heavy district and another for the Republican-leaning Utah.
