On Tuesday, October 18, 2016, the DC Council approved Mayor Bowser's proposed constitution with the following major changes:

* Remove the name New Columbia and replace it with State of Washington, DC as the name for the 51st state. The new name would represent Douglas Commonwealth, in celebration of DC resident and abolitionist, Frederick Douglas.

* Require a constitutional convention with elected delegates held two years after statehood becomes official. All changes would bypass lawmakers and go directly to voters for approval.
