Muriel B DC Crime Law

District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser, accompanied by D.C. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson (right), speaks at a news conference. Mendelson, head of the D.C. Council, said on March 6 that he is withdrawing the capital city’s new criminal code from consideration, just before a U.S. Senate vote that seemed likely to overturn the measure. It’s unclear if the action will prevent the vote or spare President Joe Biden a politically charged decision on whether to endorse the congressional action. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik, File)
