The Biden White House officially backed a House bill that would make Washington D.C. the 51st state, saying it will give D.C residents “long overdue full representation in Congress.” Rep. James Comer (R-KY) and shadow D.C Senator Paul Strauss weigh in on D.C. statehood, how this impacts the 23rd Amendment and if they would back Puerto Rico statehood.

While Republicans have complained about the bills cost and impact on the economy, FOX Business is reporting these moves could be a “financial boon” for big corporations, including fossil fuel companies. Fox Business Correspondent Edward Lawrence discusses how some big companies like Amazon could benefit from President Biden’s green agenda, but how it could also hurt small businesses and other industries in the process.
