D.C. Lawmakers Sue Mayor Over Budget Autonomy
The D.C. Council is moving to sue the city's mayor and chief financial officer over a voter-approved measure designed to give the District the power to spend its own tax dollars without first seeking federal approval.

WAMU 88.5 reporter Patrick Madden joins Kojo to explore what the disagreement is about and where it's likely to go from here.
