It has been a rough couple of weeks for the leadership of D.C. But there has also been some major progress on several issues regarding D.C. on Capitol Hill.
Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton announced Friday a Senate Appropriations Committee approved two major issues this week.
One would keep the District Government from shutting down in the event of a federal shutdown.
The other issue would honor one of D.C.'s most cherished residents, Frederick Douglass. The Committee gave the green light for the Douglass statue that now sits at One Judiciary Square to be moved to Statuary Hall inside the U.S. Capitol.
Both measures have to make their way to a full Senate and House vote.
