HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,

SUBCOMMITTEE No. 3 OF THE

(S. 1681, H.R. 1379, H.R. 2321, H.R. 4400, and H.R. 8081 follow:)

[S. 1681, 86th Cong., 1st sess.)
AN ACT To provide an elected mayor, city council, and nonvoting delegate to the House of

Representatives for the District of Columbia, and for other purposes
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United

States of America in Congress assembled, That subject to the retention by Con-

gress of the ultimate legislative authority over the Nation's Capital which is

granted by the Constitution, it is the intent of Congress to restore to the in-

habitants of the District of Columbia the powers of local self-government which

are a basic privilege of all American citizens; to reaffirm through such action

the confidence of the American people in the strengthened validity of principles

of local self-government by the elective process; to promote among the in-

habitants of the District the sense of responsibility for the development and well-

being of their community which will result from the enjoyment of such powers

of elf-government; to provide for the more effective participation in the devel-

opment of the District and in the solution of its local problems by those persons

who are most closely concerned ; and to relieve the National Legislature of the

burden of legislating upon purely local District matters. It is the further inten-

tion of Congress to exercise its retained ultimate legislative authority over the

District only insofar as such action shall be necessary or desirable in the in-

terest of the Nation. Finally, it is recognized that the restoration of the powers

of local self-government to the inhabitants of the District by this Act will in

no way change the need, which arises from the unique character of the District

as the Nation's Capital, for the payment by the Federal Government of a share
