Why is Washington D.C. not a state?
- ?Lv 71 month agoFavorite Answer
Because the constitution set forth provisions for the establishment of a district solely under the authority of congress. If washington d.c. was part of a state, the govenor of that state would have considerable influence on the federal government.
