The Senate Homeland Security Committee will hold a hybrid hearing Tuesday on D.C. statehood including remarks from Mayor Muriel Bowser, Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton, and former senator and committee chair Joe Lieberman.

The hearing will discuss statehood legislation that already passed the House earlier this year, posing a rare event that supporters hope will keep the issue in the political limelight.
