(Sept. 19, 1979, D.C. Law 3-16, § 11b; as added Oct. 30, 2018, D.C. Law 22-179, § 201(d), 65 DCR 9569; Sept. 11, 2019, D.C. Law 23-16, § 5143, 66 DCR 8621.)

Applicability

Section 5142(c) of D.C. Law 23-16 amended section 301(a) of D.C. Law 23-16 removing the applicability provision impacting subsection (a)(1) and (6) of this section. Therefore, the addition of subsection (a)(1) and (6) of this section by section 201(d) of D.C. Law 22-179 (as amended by D.C. Law 23-16) has been implemented.

Applicability of D.C. Law 22-179: § 301 of D.C. Law 22-179 provided that the creation of this section by § 201(d) of D.C. Law 22-179 is subject to the inclusion of the law’s fiscal effect in an approved budget and financial plan. Therefore that amendment has not been implemented.
