Applicability

Section 7008 of D.C. Law 22-33 repealed § 401 of D.C. Law 20-76. Therefore the changes made to this section by D.C. Law 20-76 have been given effect.

Applicability of D.C. Law 20-76: § 401 of D.C. Law 20-76 provided that the change made to this section by § 203 of D.C. Law 20-76 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.
