(June 5, 2018, D.C. Law 22-111, § 8, 65 DCR 4278; Oct. 30, 2018, D.C. Law 22-168, § 3054(c), 65 DCR 9388.)

Applicability

Section 7033 of D.C. Law 22-168 repealed § 10 of D.C. Law 22-111 removing the applicability restriction impacting this section. Therefore the creation of this section by D.C. Law 22-111 has been given effect.

Applicability of D.C. Law 22-111: § 10 of D.C. Law 22-111 provided that the creation of this section by § 8 of D.C. Law 22-111 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.
